being one of the most recognisable names from Indian art history is also one of the most forged (Representational Image) Top News To the casual eye the two images hung side by side — both depicting the same mythological scene of Arjuna and Subhadra — look like they might have been produced by Raja Ravi Varma The one on the left is a large oil painting which seems to have acquired the patina of age and authenticity and the one on the left is a print One of them we are informed is a fake but it is only on a closer look that significant differences begin to emerge The figures in the print have a grace and lightness that could only have come from the hand of a master artist whereas those in the oil painting are marked by stiffness that becomes more apparent the more one looks at them This rigidity is visible in Arjuna’s pose as he bends forward in his inelegant trunk-like legs and in the straight stiff pleats of Subhadra’s sari This infelicitous execution one becomes convinced could never have come from Varma It is well-known by now that Varma besides being one of the most recognisable names from Indian art history is also one of the most forged This is because his have been among the most popular artwork in the country for over a 100 years says Ashvin Rajagopalan Director of Mumbai’s Piramal Museum of Art and that over time people have lost track of which works he actually created and which ones he didn’t “There are people who have bought reproductions in the ’20s and ’30s and those have been resold as originals because they have aged naturally over 70-80 years” he says In an effort to educate art lovers the museum has organised the exhibition “Likeness without Reference — The Cultures of Forgery” Curated by Vaishnavi Ramanathan the show examines the ways in which forgeries and fakes are made and how they appear in the art market Rajagopalan explains “There are two types of ‘fakes’ The first one is deliberately made to cheat someone while the other comprises works that are done in imitation of existing artworks or in their style by practitioners of the art form” A particularly engaging section of exhibition goes into specific details about how collectors whether they are buying from auction houses galleries or independent art dealers can take steps to ensure they’re getting the real deal It details how for instance the reverse or “verso” of an art work is just as important as the front in authenticating since the artist may have scribbled a signature or other telling details there The verso may also carry gallery or dealer labels which can help establish provenance and authenticity “Likeness Without Reference” works best as an introduction to the landscape of fakes in the Indian art world throwing light on why the works of certain artists are more susceptible to fraudulent practices than others Artists such as SH Raza MF Husain and FN Souza command a high price in the market and so the risk of faking their works naturally comes with a greater financial payoff A Husain fake for instance is a part of the exhibition and is displayed alongside the original In this case the forger had made his work based on an image of the original and had left out crucial details such as half of a female figure’s foot This among other things was what helped experts identify the forgery Even traditional arts such as Pichvai and Tanjore paintings are not free from fakes given how high the demand for them is The case of artists such as Jamini Roy and Varma becomes complicated because both had a practice of replicating their own works thus muddying the waters for those who seek to authenticate their works now Given that the art market in India is highly unregulated and the problem of fakes — both in modern and traditional arts — is rampant authenticating art becomes an important if thorny task and the job of educating art lovers and collectors assumes great urgency The exhibition is on at Piramal Museum of

book (Source: Howard Jacobson/Facebook) Top News This is one account of his journey to become US President that Donald Trump will not particularly appreciate Though purporting to be the story of Prince Fracassus the heir apparent to the Duchy of Origen known for its “golden-gated skyscrapers and casinos” British Booker Prize winner Howard Jacobson’s latest work is easily recognisable as a trenchant satire on the 45th US President READ ALSO |Book review: The Sum of AllFears Should any reader still not be able to figure it out the cover and silhouette illustrations within the narrative which is couched in the form of a coming-of-age-cum-political novel in a fable-like setting amply indicate whom the protagonist supposedly represents If there is any further doubt there is Jacobson’s version of the Biblical Revelation where the narrator sees rising out of the sea a beast whose “face was as the face of a spoiled child…” and is given power and authority by the people who worshipped him despite “there was given unto him a mouth speaking foolish things…” Who else in the world could it be Beginning with Fracassus acquiring a new tutor it chronicles his education and other early formative influences his forays into business and politics and the lessons he learns from some masters down to his ultimate victory But what makes it intriguing is his early unsuccessful love affair with the determined Sojjourner (with a double J as she points out) Heminway — and it is only much later we learn how it came out In another twist she becomes his opponent in the election for the new “Prime Mover of All The Republics” But in the arsenal of literary weapons satire is frequently akin to a machine gun and Jacobson’s work has a wide range of targets — the privileged elite politicians and politics in general self-aggrandizing business the “sexist” mindset (which gives the book its title) manufactured xenophobia the cult of celebrity mindless “entertainment” with a special emphasis on game shows and not the least the fickle public mind Jacobson manages to hit all with one of his most incisive and hard-hitting shots at the “whole secret of good government” which is simply to make lavish promises but not keep them coupled with the infallible formula of political success — to be thorough Fracassus is told by a master practitioner that people never forgive a half-hearted liar “but if they know you to be a liar through and through and you show that you know they know you to be a liar they can trust you” As hard-hitting — and going far beyond the purported population it describes — is the series of volleys on the public and its inconsistent beliefs demands and goals “A hunger for change A dread of change A virulent mutual distrust that pitted citizen against citizen… A belief in the free market of goods and ideas that concealed a profound reluctance to trade freely in either A delight in what was gaudy that concealed a contempt for the wealth that made gaudy possible A contempt for wealth that concealed a veneration for it A sense that is to say of universal futility and despair for which — and here was the part that interested the Prince — the only antidote was him” Evokes any resonance It could explain rise of many “popular” leaders besides the current POTUS Another highlight is a barbed look at another key leader —Vozzek Spravchik whose offices has photos of him “in his swimming trunks driving a jeep diving surfing and standing in an Olympic pool balancing on each shoulder the two synchronised swimmers who’d won silver medals…” as well as a painting of him “arm-wrestling a polar bear” But the ultimate abiding and unforgettable lesson is from the same reworking of the Revelations where people eventually ask why they worshipped
