Towards the end of the nineteenth century, equipped with training from art schools and easily portable art materials, artists, especially from smaller towns in Maharashtra, began to travel freely and step out of their studio spaces into the open air to sketch and paint from life. S. L. Haldankar was one of the finest plein-air artists who played with the fluid contours of landscape painting, revealed remarkably in this Untitled work. Not only did he create imposing landscapes, Haldankar’s art school encouraged many more future generations of landscape artists.
