Title Review

The Eyes of the Thar brings the desert in western Rajasthan alive through the sensitive eyes of the multi-talented artist, Satish Gupta. The reader is taken on a timeless journey through the carved havelis, frescoed walls, the wonderous life of royalty, and the colours of desert fairs to the vast open expanses of the dunes with nomads on camel backs winding their way through eternity. And, then, Satish''s technique of compressed colours, as complex as the layers of the desert sands, penetrates the very mysteries hidden in the eyes of Thar.

This book in 256 pages includes 141 colour plates.

A poet, painter and sculptor of wide renown, Satish Gupta has held one-man shows on his ''desert-series'' in Indian metropolises, the Gallery Bose-Pacia Modern in New York, and Gallery GO in Amesterdam; besides his participation in various group shows in many countries and art galleries.
