“The oldest living city in the world”.

This is a portrait of my friend Durga who is one of the most talented artist of his generation.
In his workshop which faces river Ganga in Varanasi (Benaras) he is painting amazing bodies making love or sometimes alone but always with sensuality and strength, with something special that reminds me a lot of Eugene Delacroix’s work…

I shot this picture in Delhi while we were visiting Safdarjung’s Tomb.
Durga thinks that this portrait makes him look older.

In Hindi, “Chitrakar” means painter.

    Recently purchased a watercolor by Durga Charan Dars
    I sense this is a valuable painting exquisitely executed. Who features his work and is he exhibited in museums in the Europe, US and India.
    Thank you for any and all information afforded me.
    Most respectfully,
