Series notesThe 1960s saw Avinash Chandra gain recognition as a 'powerful' artist by the artistic community in London, and receive much publicity in the UK media. He travelled and exhibited in art galleries across the UK, Europe and North America, was introduced to Queen Elizabeth, and had a BBC documentary made about his work. In 1965, Avinash Chandra became the first Indian-British artist to have work displayed at the Tate Gallery in London. He moved to New York in 1966 and returned to London in 1969. This grouping features several exhibition catalogues, flyers, photographs and drawings by Avinash Chandra.
