Abstract art is a curiosity that evades standard definitions, but within art historical timelines is usually understood as an art movement in the early 20th century. Some people note however, that signs of abstraction can be seen in the material traces of the earliest civilisations of the world and even in the prehistoric cave paintings, if you look carefully!

This pack explores the work of a prominent Indian abstract artist in the MAP collection – C. Douglas, who is a master of capturing emotion in lines, patterns and colours.
