Rose Fried Gallery

New York City, United States of America

The Rose Fried Gallery (1944 - 1971) was located at 40 East 68th Street, New York. It was the venue for ‘Avinash Chandra’, a solo exhibition by the artist, 22 October - 20 November 1968. Chandra, born in Simla, India in 1931, had moved to London in 1956. A decade later he was living in New York, his exhibition at Rose Fried Gallery coming two years later.

The exhibition came a substantial catalogue, with numerous reproductions of Chandra’s work, with four of his paintings printed in colour. Chandra provided a very interesting biographical essay, outlining the development of his artistic practice. This was reprinted from the October 1968 issue of Studio International. Included in the text, “My painting became a discovery of my Indian nature and temperament, and without knowing it I drew more and more on Indian images. For example, English churches and their Gothic spires reminded me of Hindu temples of the age you find at Khajuraho in Central India.”
