CATALOGUE NOTES
Before moving to Bombay, B Prabha studied at the Nagpur School of Art. After moving, she went on to graduate from the Sir J. J. School of Art where she met her husband who was a fellow student. B Prabha made it in the art world at a time where there were very few women artists. Following her phase of experimentation with watercolour and gouache, Prabha developed an elegant, formal style that remained her trademark and used oil as her preferred medium. She made very few prints in her career which makes this serigraph very rare. Her paintings cover a wide range of subjects, from landscapes to social issues like droughts, hunger and homelessness.
