Jamil Naqsh: a retrospective

£90.00

Product description

Jamil Naqsh is one of Pakistan's pre-eminent modern artists. Having received his early training wit the miniaturist, Ustad Muhammad Sherif at the Mayo School of Art in Lahore - now the national college of the Arts - he left school before having obtained a diploma.

In just over four decades he has created a compelling corpus of drawings, watercolours and oils based on a repertoire of his favourite subjects: woman, pigeon and horse. His obsession with eh line inspired him to explore Arabic Calligraphy as an art form and let to his 'Modern Manuscripts'

Naqsh believes that his artistic legacy lies in the variation of form, colour and texture of his subjects and the volume of his work. He draws inexhaustible inspiration from his subjects and merely paints for his own pleasure.
