Banaras is the religious captial of India. Situated on the Ganges, it contains more than 1500 temples and mosques. Almost all of the city’s five kilometres of river banks have been converted into ghats. Manu Parekh has executed a series of paintings inspired by the city. He made a conscious decision to concentrate on landscape in the series to give himself the opportunity to play out the dynamic of faith and fear that he identifies as uniquely Indian.In turn, this book is a collection of the essays by seven writers who have been inspired by his work in this series. Tanuj Berry considers the use of red in the Banaras paintings while Aditi De looks at the theme of holiness and pilgrimage. We hear the voice of Manu Parekh in the inclusion of an interview with the artist in which he explains what attracted him to Banaras and how the city ignited his creativity. These essays offer a thorough assessment of his themes and motivations. Painted in the Indian Expressionist style these works have a significant role in the development of modern Indian painting. Printed Pages: 218 with 153 colour illustrations.
