Late 20th century
19.2 x 16.7 in. / 48.8 x 42.4 cm.
Viscosity on paper
Educated in printmaking at Atelier 17 in Paris and the Pratt Institute, New York, Arun Bose mastered the intaglio and viscosity techniques. Even though Bose worked in New York, he remained closely associated with the Society of Contemporary Artists in India, contributing vastly to printmaking techniques in the country of his birth. Through Lady, Bose unearths a raw, primitive appeal, which set many of his works apart from those of his contemporaries. Neither tantric, nor fully submerged in the folk tradition, this work is an amalgamation of Bose’s many ideas and influences.
