D C Joglekar was born in 1896. He studied at the J J School of Art, Mumbai between 1912 and 1917, receiving the Government, Lord Mayo and Rao of Kutch Scholarships. He won several Silver Medals from Exhibitions in 1916, 1917, 1919, 1921, 1929 and Bronze Medals in 1912 and 1918. Considered as a great master of the yesteryears from the Bombay School, though he won these various medals his paintings were exhibited for the first time in India only in 2004 as part of the Master Strokes III Exhibition at the Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai. An old master Dattatraya Chintaman Joglekar’s range of paintings has a startling polarity of vision despite the overlapping time frame of productivity. He worked mostly in Mumbai, while traveling all over India, was a water colorist whose compositions included panoramic landscapes and architectural facets and views of urban and rural situations .In 1929, he was invited to paint panels depicting the history of the Maratha Empire for the Lahore National Congress.

Joglekar was rooted in the indigenous environment; his aesthetic vision was awash with its pulse and rhythm. Perhaps his work as a field and laboratory artist and photographer in the Royal Institute of Science gave him an unusual insight into the topography and panorama of the great Indian hinterland. Together with formal training in art he grew to distinguish himself as a remarkably gifted watercolourist, who was able to bring in the emotive essence of Indian aesthetics into his painterly vocabulary.
