With great pleasure and pride, I present Kapoor Galleries’ latest catalog. Among other masterpieces, this publication showcases a distinguished Kangxi style bronze in the rare form of Chittavishramana Lokeshvara.
This catalog is also a celebration of the gallery’s forty-plus years of success as a family enterprise, and a tribute to my grandfather, Ramesh Kapoor, and late grandmother, Urmil Kapoor, whose pioneering efforts helped bring the field of Indian and Himalayan art to where it is today. After India’s partition in
1947, Ramesh left Pakistan along with his parents and migrated from Lahore to Jalandhar, India. There, the government allocated his father, Shri Prashotam Ram Kapoor, an empty store where he could establish his own business. An avid reader, my great-grandfather always carried books with him, which led to a thrift merchant offering him an entire private library. Thereafter, my great-grandfather started a rental library, catering to Indian refugees whose displacement left them with ample time to read.
