Bimal Dasgupta built his early reputation making landscapes in watercolour but with constant experimentation, he eventually created abstract landscapes, a genre he owned brilliantly. This Untitled landscape harmoniously merges two bookends of his career in one work—coming from the back to the front, the work begins as a landscape and seamlessly transforms into abstraction. At the far end is an aqua green sea fading into the horizon, while the beach cradles the microcosm of the land’s ecosystem encapsulated in a densely-packed amorphous form. A barren tree stands as a reminder of the damage caused by man to earth.
