India Ink by Martha McKee Keehn
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is an evocative collection of letters written by one of the first serious collectors of modern Indian art. It offers a dedicated mailing and e-mail campaign to targeted art related media & organisations. In 1953, Martha McKee Keehn and her family moved from their comfortable American home to the chaotically lively streets of Delhi after her husband Tom took up a job promoting Indian handicrafts in association with the Indian Co-operative Union. For the next eight years, Martha and her family lived and breathed Indian life to the full, falling in love with its rich history, culture, and especially its art - the Keehn's were some of the first serious collectors and advocates of modern Indian art. "India Ink" brings together a wonderfully evocative collection of letters, written by Martha to her family and friends that reveal not only how they adjusted to life in India, but how they came to play such an active role in the country's art scene. Interspersed with paintings from their collection, this unique volume perfectly captures the optimism and creative spirit of India at a vital time in its emergence.
