D. C. Joglekar often painted temples to convey not just the richness of India’s architectural wonders and natural beauty but also to create a personal language in Indian art that was rooted in academic realism. The visual documentation of temple sites, other places of worship and other sites, was imbued with a sense of nationalistic pride. A remarkable watercolourist, Joglekar was able to evoke a sense of quiet wonder on the everyday beauty of life through such sensitive portrayals of the Indian countryside.
