N.S. Bendre - Pundole's


N.S. Bendre was not only a highly skilled artist but a gifted and dedicated teacher who spent 16 years at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Baroda, imparting knowledge and encouraging an entire generation of budding artists to think out of the box and push themselves beyond the traditional schools of painting popular in India. He encouraged individual creativity and wanted them to be inspired by music and visual arts outside of India. To this end, he introduced art history classes of various world cultures into the teaching program. Freedom and innovation were the cornerstones of his teaching philosophy, and the best example to follow was himself as he himself experimented with several Westerm styles and recreated them within his Indian context. The varied examples we offered in our sale on Thursday are testament to his unique artistic sensibility.
