These works by C. S. Kerkar, father of our founder, Subodh Kerkar, were painted between 1950 and 2004. Majority of his works are connected with fishing scenes and fish markets, which formed a major part of Goa’s cultural ethos. There are also paintings depicting scenes of other village activities. One of the paintings shows a man bargaining with a fisherwoman. He is making a sign of two with his fingers. In 1965, when the work was created, the two fingers meant Rs. 2/-. Over the years, the price of the fish has risen from Rs. 2/- to Rs. 2,000/-. Mr. Kerkar’s works are a great visual record of Goan life of the bygone days.
