‘Lain Singh Bangdel: Moon Over Kathmandu’

Lain Singh Bangdel: Moon Over Kathmandu brings to life many of the notable contributions of Nepal’s preeminent modern artist, Lain Singh Bangdel (1919-2002). A 20th-century polymath, Bangdel became an acclaimed novelist, art historian, preservationist, academician, and painter who played a pivotal role in shaping the history of art in South Asia. Moon Over Kathmandu assembles approximately 20 of Bangdel’s paintings to chart the artist’s pioneering pursuit of abstraction that would help define a modern Nepal. Born to a family of migrant workers on a tea plantation in Darjeeling, India, Bangdel explores a sense of home, longing, and loss through his work.
