CATALOGUE NOTES Prabhakar Barwe studied art at Sir J. J. School of Art,Bombay. His fascination with the abstract form, drawn from the style and the concepts of Bauhaus, was reflected in his early watercolours and later works with floating motifs on a transparent surface. Barwe rejected both the British academic tradition-dictated artistic models in Indian figurative art and the Indian miniature form to evolve a universal, abstract visual language that explored inward spaces and transient realities.
