Lancelot Ribeiro: An Artist in India and Europe

> See details of Lancelot Ribeiro: An Artist in India and Europe by David Buckman

Retracing Ribeiro

Lancelot Ribeiro (1933–2010) was one of the most original of the Indian artists who settled in Britain after the Second World War. But, although there has been a surge of interest in art of the sub-continent in recent years, he remains largely neglected.
Ribeiro was hugely prolific. A series of solo and mixed shows in England and abroad excited collector-interest through much of his life, however, during his final years he withdrew from the art world and so became largely forgotten. Since his death, however, his work has witnessed a revival and he is being recognised as a painter of international stature.

“It can be an amazing experience to witness the ‘re-birth’ of work and the careers of great artists, hidden to many, and so often lost to generations, but who are eventually unearthed and repackaged for a new and wider public to enjoy! Ribeiro was a master of his trade, with energised enthusiasm for new styles and experiments, we are pleased to welcome him, and acquire a selection of his paintings as part of the V&A collection.”

Janet Browne, Programme Manager, African Heritage and Culture

“Restless and talented, relentlessly prolific, personally chaotic, endlessly inventive and utterly charming with a poet’s mind”

David Coombs, The ArtNewsLetter, 2015
