We travel with Sen as she explores Ganesh Pyne's Jottings as expressions of his secret subliminal dreams; discovers that M.F. Husain's self-portraits are manifestations of his extraordinary changing persona over seven decades; understands the rare religious icons Meera Mukherjee created in the last decade of her life; and unravels Nilima Sheikh's Firdaus scrolls which ambitiously weave together disparate elements to comment on Kashmir. In these perceptive essays Sen deconstructs Anupam Sud's representation of the body as beautiful and as an extension of her own identity analyses Manjit Bawa's ingenious merging of the mythic with the present sees in Zarina Hashmi's woodcuts the marks of migration and displacement and accompanies S.H. Raza as he returns to his own past to reinvent the Bindu. Illustrated by the paintings of these masters each essay is a journey both by the artist and the author to explore lesser-known dimensions of their work. 9789350292013
