Among the works by Matisse, Picasso, Man Ray and other outstanding artists, Kochar’s “Oriental Women” was exhibited in the “Modern Odalisques” Hall of the “Multiformity of Modernism” event. We sought to echo that atmosphere with this show of “Kochar’s Oriental Women”.
Admiring the charm of oriental women, Kochar created a superb series of women’s characters. These works being presently in private collections abroad, the “Kochar’s Oriental Women” Exhibition features their high quality reproductions. The display is accompanied by commenting notes and a video.\
