Black Brown & the Blue offers a tantalizing glimpse into the world of renowned contemporary Indian artist, Shuvaprasanna. Few artists of his generation can claim to have a creative oeuvre as large and diverse as his. Over the past four decades, he has created numerous paintings, lithographs, graphics, sculptures, and a wide variety of mixed media art on themes that range from the despondency of the urban chaos, surreal crows and cats, to the delightful play of the deities, as well as realistic portraiture and sensuous renderings of still life. These have not only adorned galleries and public and private spaces, but also book covers, posters, articles, magazines, and much else.

With full page colour reproductions of the art works along with a selection of personal photographs and other rare memorabilia supporting the text, the book takes the reader through the many turns and twists in the story of the man, his art and the times.

Their well-researched insights into Shuvaprasanna s art make Black Brown & the Blue a must-read for any connoisseur, collector and student of contemporary Indian art. Author Bio (3900 characters maximum): Shuvaprasanna is not just an artist but a teacher, activist, and founder of institutions as well. In this book, the many facets of his art, life and times are examined by well-regarded voices from the world of contemporary Indian art, which include eminent curator Sushma Bahl, distinguished art historians B.N. Goswamy and Seema Bawa, noted author and curator Ina Puri, veteran art critic Manasij Majumder, and the German scholar Ralf Oestreich.

Review 1: The exhibition of Shuvaprasanna s paintings... is a sensitive showing... professional and fresh... charged with an element of surprise... an expression of sensitivity. Source: Richard Bartholomew, Times of India, Delhi, 1974

Review 2: His painting is delicate, but the flesh and bones of his figures emerge to give us their message, the tenderness and strength is profoundly human. Source: Anil de Silva-Vigier, Paris, 1975

Review 3: His fame by no means is providential. He had to work hard for it and with his talent he is today one of the recognised Indian painters… Shuvaprasanna through his painting has established himself as a philosopher and poet too. Source: Ahi Malik, The Hindustan Standard, Calcutta, 1978
