Avinash Chandra (1931 - 1991) - Born in Shimla, Chandra studied at the Delhi Polytechnic Art School before moving to London in 1956 to attend the Central School of Art and Design. Starting off with landscapes in his early years, his style became more abstract in the fifties under the influence of western artists. He was the first Indian artist to exhibit at the Documenta in Kassel. His works were then shown in North America, Israel and London. His paintings are included in the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, Tate Gallery and Victoria & Albert Museum, London, Museed'ArtModerne, Paris, Museum of Modern Art, Berlin and in New York University, among other public collections. Chandra died on the 15th of September 1991.
