Mid-century art at its finest, this abstract etching will make a great addition to any art collection. Offered here is an embossed etching by well-known Indian artist Jyoti Bhatt. This brown, blue and black etching, titled N.Y. Subway, is an Artist Proof created in 1965 while Bhatt was studying print making in New York City. It shows influences of Indian design combined with urban New York life. A wonderful mix of cultures and colors early in the artist’s career. The embossed sections of the etching give it depth which is hard to capture in photographs. The etching is in excellent condition in it’s original frame with linen mat.

Jyotindra Manshankar Bhatt (b. 1934), is best known for his modernist work in print making and painting. He is also reknown for his photographic documentation of rural Indian culture. In the early 1960s Bhatt studied at the Academia di Belle Arti in Naples, Italy. He spent two years (1964-1966) studying print making at Pratt Institute in New York (Fulbright Scholarship). In 1966 Bhatt returned to India to teach at M.S.U. Baroda.

Jyoti Bhatt lives and works out of Vadodara (fomerly Baroda), India.

Jyoti Bhatt has won numerous awards and his work is in international collections, including the Museum of Modern Art , New York, The Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C., and The British Museum, London.
