ART EXPLORATIONS OF CHUGHTAI ART SERIES FIVE;
ETCHINGS AND AQUATINTS AND ENGRAVED PLATES;
WESTERN MEDIA UNDER PERFECTION EASTERN HANDS.
It was preferable to jump to coloured things, but the engraved scene was important enough to take our hands on it. The complete tale is on our blog and entitled EAST MET WEST and it can not only be read there, but also downloaded by anyone interested in same. Sir Frank Short said the final word in 1936. You are learning a Western technique, do not lose your Eastern touch anytime. Paul Drury said other things. Your head is a bank of faces, from where you can draw a face at will by drawing a cheque on it. Western artists loved him even in the 1920s and 1930s. Our modern artists vomit an indigestible Chughtai. For them this mixture of East and West is dangerous for their existence. Chughtai erased this opposition within his own lifetime.
Exhibition on etchings have been held many times. Main exhibition shows were in Japan, American Centre Lahore and Grosvenor Gallery London. Charles Moore is happy to consult with us at times. Thanks Charles! You are fun.
