In 1993, De Bijenkorf, a chain of department stores in the Netherlands, collaborated with Inventure India, a management and franchising consulting firm to organize an exhibition titled ‘The Spirit of India’ that promoted and celebrated India’s evolution since its independence from the British empire. The project comprised three solo shows of artists Bhupen Khakhar, Sudarshan Shetty and Atul Dodiya in Galerie Nouvelles Images in The Hague, Holland Art Gallery in Rotterdam and Galerie Apunto in Amsterdam respectively. The three artists were also commissioned to create a joint portfolio of prints at Steendrukkerij Amsterdam that was exhibited at De Bijenkorf’s stores in The Hague, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Eindhoven, Arnhem and Utrecht. The present lot is one of the editions produced, comprising six vibrant lithographs.
