Bhavsar, one of the world’s preeminent abstract painters, has changed the way people view both art and those who make it. His work can be found in some 800 collections worldwide, including those of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. He has been the recipient of grants from the John D. Rockefeller III Fund and the Guggenheim Foundation. For nearly six decades, the Indian-born
artist has stretched the conventional boundaries of the canvas with his deeply absorbing color-field paintings. At the same time, Bhavsar has challenged notions of national identity in art,
drawing fruitfully from his Indian background but refusing to be defined by it.
