Private Exhibition, 1986 – Photograph

Series nameSlides from the 1980s & 1990s

This image depicts a set of four paintings by Avinash Chandra on display at an exhibition held at the Orangery Restaurant in Holland Park, London in 1986. The style of Chandra’s 1980s work had come to depict the serenity of nature, paintings flowers, trees and landscapes, almost as a more matured return to his very early work in the 1950s.
