At the Exhibition: Udaipur Seen and Unseen

Mr. Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar visited the exhibition "Udaipur Seen and Unseen" , an exhibition of water colour paintings by artist Dr. Hiroshi Shimazaki from Canada displayed at Shilp Sabha, Manek Chowk, The City Palace, Udaipur from 12th January -22nd January 2020. In this exhibition, Udaipur sites seen through the eyes of a Japanese-Canadian geographer are rendered in 36 watercolours. For Shimazaki, Udaipur and environs is a romantic open-air classroom where the integration of thought and painting serve as a conduit towards the appreciation of the living landscape. Shimazaki's Indian painting journey began with a 1976 research trip to Badrinath.

Udaipur's romantic atmosphere enraptured his soul and ignited his imagination and he has returned several times. The watercolours presented here were created from a selection of field sketches made in this region between 2004 and 2019. Shimazaki was delighted, on his last two visits, to be accompanied by his friend, retired geologist Professor Dr. Pushpendra Singh Ranawat of Udaipur. The paintings afforded an opportunity for the native Udaipur academic to share his distinctive interpretations.
