An important member of the Calcutta Group, which stressed on the ideals of humanism, Gopal Ghose, like many of his contemporaries, was affected by the communal violence, riots and massacre on the streets of Calcutta in 1946. In the same year, he made quite a few paintings—of which this Untitled work is a part—hurriedly but aesthetically, to depict the city in flames. The human figures in these paintings were either relegated to the background or absent, the stress invariably on the destruction of the city.
