Dharmanarayan Dasgupta’s inimitable and brilliant vision had him mock the fopperies of Bengal’s educated elite, the bhadralok, specifically its pomposities that are not only out of touch with social reality but often hide a venality beneath the apparent genteel exterior. Dasgupta’s humorous and fantasy-oriented social satire, as shown in this Untitled painting that features a female figure in a saree with other elements reflecting her loneliness, achieved an identity, particularly in the mid-Eighties when he featured many of these works in both, group and solo exhibitions.
