A Belated Homecoming: Ramachandran's Books for Children

 by Siddharth Sivakumar

Speaking about the future of illustrated children’s books in India, some years back, Ramachandran
had said, “To discuss the future of children’s picture books in the Indian context is like discussing the
future of an unborn child”. But the initiative taken by the Vadehra Art Gallery in making Ramachandran’s
books available for the delight of young Indian readers is a silver lining that promises a brighter future.
A distinctive feature of Ramachandran’s illustrations is the use of different traditional art forms, or
adoption of certain culture specific motif and stylized treatments. This, as the blurb claims, was done
in order “to acquaint children with the vibrant image of Indian conceptual art which help children to
develop an aesthetic sense and thus grow up as sensitive human beings.”

Ramachandran’s Picture Books for Children

By Siddharth Sivakumar

An edited version of this article appeared in 'Art and Deal', Issue 60, Volume 9, No. 29, June 2013

The last time I received a picture-book, was way back in 1999. It was a present on my seventh birthday. I never imagined, at twenty, I would still be so delighted in being presented with a set of picture-books. The books were illustrated by the noted artist A. Ramachandran. Although I was quite familiar with his paintings and sculptures, his expertise as a writer and illustrator of children’s book was unknown to me. Looking at the picture-books, I realised, he is particularly cautious not to impose his own artistic language while illustrating books. The vibrant colours and images of his books which are unusual and beautiful beyond the restrains of reality, inspired me to follow his journey as an illustrator and trace the picture books to the artist’s ideas and ideals.
