The founders of the Progressive Artists Group often cite "the partition" as an impetus for their style of
modern art. Their intention was to "paint with absolute freedom for content and technique, almost
anarchic, save that we are governed by one or two sound elemental and eternal laws, of aesthetic order,
plastic co-ordination and colour composition.” they wrote. In 1950, Krishen Khanna joined the Group.
