Arun Bose’s print repertoire comprised semi-abstract, quasi-representational compositions that appear like organic structures but are not always so in their origins. His was a brand of exotic ‘Indian’ abstraction that became increasingly popular with printmakers through the Sixties, Seventies, and the Eighties, relying heavily on the textural and tactile effects that the medium was able to produce. In Bose’s outstanding prints, there is a strong suggestion of a modern India created through the artist’s unique visual grammar, known for his prints’ smooth finish and craftsmanship.
