Sadequain and the Culture of Enlightenment

Akbar Naqvi

The book looks at the great Pakistani painter from a new angle. The author writes on his personality, calligraphy, poetry, drawing and painting in the context of twentieth century modernism. Sadequain was a great modern artist who created a new art in which he interpreted change as the need of time. He was an innovative calligrapher, poet, master of drawing, mural and easel painting who combined his skill in all of these crafts/arts to create works which are unique in the world: honouring the modern viability of his culture of enlightenment which flourished from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries.
