Sudhir Patwardhan was born in Pune in 1949. He studied medicine and practiced as a Radiologist in Thane, near Mumbai, till recently. His first one-man exhibition was held in 1979, and since then his work has been seen in several cities in India and abroad. Patwardhan’s work has gained wide critical acclaim and he is today considered one of India’s major artists. Drawing has been an integral part of Patwardhan’s artistic practice. We see that his preoccupation with the human figure finds first expression in the small drawings of the seventies. Through the decades drawing has retained for the artist an equal and independent importance along with his paintings. This book, published on the occasion of an exclusive show of Patwardhan’s drawings from 1972 to 2005, brings together more than 120 works on paper. Ranjit Hoskote engages Patwardhan in a long probing conversation and writes an insightful introduction to the collection
