About this Item

Zimbabwean 1932-
Linear Abstract Composition
signed
oil on canvas
120 by 242 by 5cm, unframed

Notes

Although born in India, Thakor Patel’s career blossomed in Zimbabwe, where he settled in 1980. His large oil paintings are defined by beautifully geometric patterning and pale, shimmering colours. While a number of his works are in the collection of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe, stunning, mature examples were recently shown at the Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town as part of the exhibition Five Bhobh: Painting at the End of an Era. The present lot is the first major example to appear at auction.

Exhibited
