Krishen Khanna continues to be deeply affected by the events taking place in his life. Displaced from his family home in Faislabad due to partition in 1947, the family moved to Simla. This left indelible memories on Khanna. His figures are those whom he has encountered in his life and he portrays their human condition. His approach shows detailed observation even though he steers firmly away from a pictorial representation. His pastels on paper are deeply emotive. This imnage of a ‘Man’ was done in 1996. From his vast experiences and interactions Khanna slowly but intuitively recreates the image with his pastels. This artwork will be shipped rolled with Crimson’s certificate of authenticity.
