Watercolour on handmade paper
Known for his allegorical paintings featuring rich backgrounds in flat tones and bulbous figures, Manjit Bawa painted many landscapes in his early years before he started creating a distinct vocabulary from the late 1970s. When young, he travelled widely and is known to have spread a sheet of paper to draw wherever nature fascinated him. In this Untitled watercolour, his imagination is caught by a cart parked under a tree with a scraggy buffalo on the side. The thick, swift and dark strokes animate the work with the energy of day-time activity at a farm.
