1 x 1 of a kind is dedicated to the memory of J.Sultan Ali, one of the founder members of P.P.A

The Progressive Painters' Association ( P.P.A ) is one of the oldest art organizations in India started by the late Shri K. C. S Paniker in 1944. Members of the P.P.A. include many eminent artists as well as some promising new talent most of whom reside in Cholamandal Artists’ Village.
Cholamandal Artists’ Village conducted India’s first Miniature Format Show in Pune in 1971, followed by similar shows in Chennai and Mumbai in 1972. 
 
Larger paintings and sculptures do call for additional powers of a kind in the artist – Rubens, for example, delighted in the opportunity they gave him to “ wade in paint “, The Americans, in recent times, rediscovered ‘size‘ again when people all over the world were actually crying hoarse for smaller pictures to suit shrinking purses and wall spaces. Large works of art certainly create a great impact on the viewer. But he can rarely hope to own them and enjoy them in the quiet of his home. The price  and the size are in the way for the majority of the people.
Modern Indian artists have been equally negligent about the right of all people to own original works of their artists. They have unwittingly created a vicious situation where they themselves suffer popular neglect and only an infinitesimal part of the population, the rich, can have any truck with them and their work. 
Small sized pictures and sculptures, if priced low, can reach a larger art loving public and eventually help create a genuine boom for art. Art is certainly not for the rich alone. It is no luxury but a dire necessity for large numbers of people.
For the above reason all works included in this exhibition have been priced between rupees fifteen and a hundred.
 
Excerpt from K.C.S Paniker’s article  on small format in the 1971 exhibition brochure, explaining the objective and importance of having such a showing.
