Published by Guru Nanak Dev University in 1987.  This is a new, hardcover book in very good condition.  Dust jacket is bright but a little dusty with age. Size: 7" x 9".  Pages: 277.

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.

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