Ramkinkar Baij was among the earliest modernists to take advantage of the swift strokes afforded by expressionism, using it with great felicity to convey movement. His study of the Santhal tribals who lived around Santiniketan provided him the fodder for his sculpture as well as painting. In this evocative work, a lone farmer can be seen working in his field against a vast landscape made imposing through trees and clouds on the horizon.
