This coffee table book on contemporary art unravels the artistic journey of a talented artist in Naina Dalal, covering a span of fifty-nine years, mainly in the printmaking activities. It showcases her flight as a painter in thinking, perceiving, imagining, creatively objectifying and expressing her artistic acumen through the medium of printmaking processes, her lifetime quest. The book traces the stages through which this versatile artist matured traversing the different realms as a painter, lithographer, etcher and a calligraphy artist. Further, this monograph is an embodiment of her several decades of artistic wisdom, maturity and thematic range. The images herein deliberate on many a political, social and ethical challenge that infects the society. Along with some shade of feminism, one also comes across her passion in reflecting the true conditions of humanity. These paintings should stir the consciousness of artists, connoisseurs and critics alike.r CONTENTS 1 Naina Dalal, the Artist and her Art of Printmaking – Nuzhat Kazmi 2 Plates: London Lithographs 3 Plates: Baroda, Found Objects 4 Nainaben’s Uniqueness – Jagadish Shivpuri 5 Plates: Collagraphs 6 Karunarasa: The Art of Naina Dalal – Gunalan Nadarajan 7 Plates: Linocuts 8 Plates: Nudes, Different Media 9 Naina Dalal at Jharokha and Art Konsult – Suneet Chopra 10 Plates: Landscapes, Still Life 11 Plates: Man & Woman 12 Plates: Female Heads 13 Plates: Male Heads 14 Plates: Woman & Horse 15 Plates: Mother 16 Plates: New Born Child 17 Artistic Crusader: Naina Dalal’s deep interest in conditions of humanity… – Geoffrey Eu 18 Plates: Bench Series 19 Plates: Talking over the Wall 20 Plates: Old Age 21 Plates: Childhood Memories 22 Aam Aadmi se ek Darja Niche Rahne ke Dard ko ukerati hain Naina Dalal – Leena Avadhesha Mishra 23 Plates: Disaster / Atrocities 24 Naina Dalal, My Story as Print maker ( + Bio Photos) 25 The Tree Within, a poem by Anahite Contractor 26 Bibliography A) Exhibition Reviews B) Critical Essays C) Mention in general articles 27 Naina Dalal – Biodata 28 Naina Dalal’s Works in Private and Public Collections
