About

This exhibition explores the legacy and art of the Indian Modernist painter Lancelot Ribeiro (1933-2010).

Restless, prolific and experimental, he produced a unique body of work inspired by his old Portuguese Goan roots - a unique fusion of Indian graphic art and Abstract Expressionism.

He first came to Britain in 1950, abandoning his accountancy course to take up life drawing. Soon returning to India, he held several successful one-man and group exhibitions, settling permanently in London in 1962.

Ribeiro created an important group of works, mixing traditional oil paints with PVA (polyvinyl acetate), the forerunner of commercial acrylic paints and in the decades that followed, he continued to reinvent the manner and medium in which he worked.

Drawn from the Ribeiro Collection and our collection, the exhibition traces the story of this important Indian artist and his artistic development.
