The Masterstrokes Of Ghani Khan

Abdul Ghani Khan (1914-1996), a master poet, sculptor and painter, was inspired by the Impressionists but developed his own style. He mostly concentrated on painting the human face because "of the infinite possibilities for the portrayal of feelings and emotions." He liked pastels but also used charcoal, pencil and paint brush. Imtiaz Ahmad Sahibzada, a friend and admirer, provided these photographs of Khan's paintings.
