About The Book

Kattingeri Krishna Hebbar was born in 1911 in Karnataka and received his diploma from the Sir J J School of Art in 1938. He taught art at the school from 1940 to 1945. While being influenced by the academic style taught at the School, Hebbar felt a strong urge to paint in a genre which drew from traditional Indian art. A visit to Europe in 1949 exposed him to some of the best works in western art and he finally settled down to study at the Academy Julian in Paris.

The definitive form begins to take shape in Heber’s work on his return from Europe. An adroit draughtsman, he won the National Award in 1956, followed by awards in the annual exhibitions of the in 1957 and 1958. Hebbar had also received the Gold Medal of the Bombay Art Society in 1947. He was the Chairman of the Lalit Kala Akademi in 1980 and President of the Bombay Art Society in 1990. The Padamshri was awarded to the veteran artist in 1961 and the Padma Bhusan in 1989. He died at the age of 85 in 1996.

It follows the path of a quest where the journey is as exhilarating and significant as the destination.
