Oscar-winning costume designer Bhanu Athaiya's paintings to go under the hammer on Dec 2

Kolkata, Nov 03 (UNI) In the predominantly male bastion of what has been categorized as the “Progressive Artists Group” or “Bombay Progressives”, the rediscovery of a suite of paintings and sketches by Oscar-winning costume designer Bhanu Athaiya (née Rajopadhye) opens up the possibility of an important reframing of a popularly held notion about the artists producing in the milieu of post-Independence, cosmopolitan Bombay (Mumbai) of the 1950s.
Athaiya, a formidable artist affiliated with the Bombay Progressives, went on to have a glittering career as a leading costume designer that included an Oscar award for her work in Richard Attenborough's Gandhi. She passed away on the 15th of last month in Mumbai.
Following months of research, including primary sources from Ms Athaiya’s personal archives, Prinseps are set to host the first-ever auction dedicated to Bhanu Rajopadhye Athaiya’s estate, with key works of art created during her years in association with the “Progressives” group, according to a statement mailed to UNI here.
