V. S. Gaitonde
Vasudeo S. Gaitonde was regarded as India’s foremost abstract artist. He was born in Maharashtra in 1924. Gaitonde’s abstract paintings with their translucent beams of light refer to nothing other than themselves and evoke subliminal depths. He experimented hugely with form and shape in his works. His use of symbolic element and very few ground lines made his work appear like a flowing river. His paintings invoke a concealed and obscure description of the real world. He was the first Indian contemporary painter whose work was sold for Rs. 92 lakhs at the Osians art auction.
