Restless Ribeiro free pdf This lavishly illustrated catalogue for the forthcoming Lance Ribeiro 2013 exhibition at Asia House is a fitting tribute to one of the most striking, if under-valued, artists of our time. By the early 1960s, Bombay-born artist Lancelot Ribeiro (1933 - 2010) or Lance, as he was later known, had had six one-man shows, and his work had toured India, Europe and North America in Ten Indian Painters. He was one of the founder members of The Indian Painters Collective, the multicultural Rainbow Group and Indian Artists UK, and organised exhibitions and lectured on Indian art and culture for the Commonwealth Institute. After two major retrospectives in the 1980s, he exhibited in Germany and Switzerland and again in India in 1998. His last public showing was in Britain just three months before his death in 2010. This catalogue demonstrates not only the highly original nature of Ribeiro's work and how he experimented with new materials ahead of his time, but how he also worked tirelessly to promote Indian art, its artists and culture in Britain. Reproducing over 70 works in full colour, this book also includes contributions from those who knew Ribeiro well, private photographs, and letters from his family archive, many of which have come to light for the first time.
