Baseer: An Eloquent Mind

12 October 2020 - 16 January 2021

You are cordially invited to view the exhibition titled ‘Baseer: An Eloquent Mind’ showcasing the works of one of the most influential modern artists of Bangladesh. Murtaja Baseer (1932 – 2020) had established a remarkable command of almost every style and genre of painting throughout his distinguished career, which spanned nearly seven decades. Ranging from tender portraits to visceral abstracts, lucid figurative to monumental murals; this exhibition is a showcase of Baseer’s astonishing reach. We hope that ‘Baseer: An Eloquent Mind’ will grant us comprehension into Murtaja Baseer’s compelling but unconventional approach to ‘abstract realism’.
