Born in Kolkata in 1937, Ganesh Pyne blended romanticism, fantasy and plays with light in his dark works. Inspired by the communal riots in Calcutta, his works dabble with violence, death and time. He comments on man’s condition by referring to social history. Pyne’s works before his marriage seems to be much darker. After, he got married, his subject brightened up marginally and his obsession with death seemed to reduce.
