The Man

Watercolour and ink on paper

Grandnephew of Rabindranath Tagore, Asit Kumar Haldar was highly regarded for his experimentation with different techniques, styles and mediums. His repertoire spanned across a variety of themes urging Abanindranath Tagore to comment on his student: ‘… Asit seems to have no limitations.’ Though known for his mythological subjects, Haldar’s artistic journey soaked in other influences, including cubism, of which The Man is a prime example. Clean, bold lines in this work show Haldar’s proclivity to be a curious, experimental artist.
