Oil on Masonite board
Though he is remembered as a talented printmaker, Ramendranath Chakravorty had studied painting in Calcutta and London, and excelled in landscapes. This Untitled oil is a dense landscape capturing a rivulet—typically known as nullah in India—in a setting devoid of human imprint, except for a bridge connecting the two hillocks between which it flows. It is not the Himalayas, evident with the absence of mountains, and the presence of broad-leaf foliage and wild tropical flowers at the bottom of the canvas. The white of the rivulet makes it a perfectly balanced picture as it helps in breaking its brown-green expanse.
