Regular price $35.00

by Kulwant Singh Khokhar

Published by Punjabi University in 1995.  This is a new, hardcover book in very good condition.  Dust jacket is bright, but has a small tear in the upper left corner. Size: 9" x 5.5".  Pages: 89 with 8 bright color plates of Sobha Singh's work.

A thoughtful biography of Sobha Singh - 1901-1986.  He painted hundreds of masterpieces during his life, with his main focus being the Sikh gurus, their life and work. His series on the Sikh gurus have dominated Sikh art to such an extent that his paintings associated with Guru Nanak and Guru Gobind Singh are perceived by the public to actual likenesses, and have been copied hundreds of times.

Kulwant Singh writes in his introduction:  "This book is neither a biography nor an autobiography.  It is a bioautography.  Sardar Sobha Singh himself told me everything about his life and philosophy.  I have tried to give it form."

An important book that helps us understand this cultural hero of the Punjab.
