About the Artist: Kattingeri Krishna Hebbar was born in 1911 at Kattingeri in the Udupi district of Karnataka. Despite training in the Western tradition, Hebbar’s body of work remained rooted in the folk traditions of India. After some initial training in Mysore and later in Mumbai at the Sir J.J. School of Art, he started his career as an art instructor at the Sir J. J. School of Art and taught there between 1940 and 1945. He then went to Europe to study art at the Academy Julian in Paris.
During his early years, known as his Kerala period (because he painted landscapes of the state extensively), Hebbar was highly influenced by Paul Gauguin and Amrita Sher Gill. The body of work he created during this period, covering more or less a decade starting from 1946, is considered extremely influential in the development of modern Indian art and occupies an important place in Indian art history. Hebbar was honoured with a number of awards through his career, including the Padma Bhushan by the President of India in 1989, and the Maharashtra Shasan ‘Gourav Puraskar’ in 1990.
