Time and Space: In 1960, Roop Chand came in contact with Mr. Le Corbusier the French artist-architect in Chandigarh, who he reacted to as a matter of aesthetical value in the forms of his buildings. Resultantly he chose a theme "Time and Space" for his paintings, and for a few years (from 1960 to 1965) he painted some abstracts in pure objective forms. He exhibited them first in Chandigarh and then in Delhi in 1965. Some of these paintings are in private collections in USA and Switzerland and Germany.
