CATALOGUE NOTES
Laxman Pai was born in Margao, Goa in 1926. Growing up in the lush surroundings of Goa, the landscape inspired him and was a recurrent theme seen in his works. He studied and later taught at the Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai. Pai was invested in the Goa liberation movement and was even imprisoned for being involved in the Satyagraha movement. His angular works illustrate man and nature in the same environment. His earlier paintings were inspired by Egyptian figures and Indian folk art. Some of his later works use structural lines and are painted in bold, vibrant colours.
