Watercolour and charcoal on handmade paper
There is an effect of calm and serenity in Bishamber Khanna’s work who, in his artistic journey, focused on various genres and mediums before specialising in abstract compositions in the complex medium of enamelling. This Untitled work from the late Fifties reflects the artist’s desire to combine various mediums to see their individualistic effects on paper and how they emerge as one holistic piece of art. Geometrical patterns and sweeping but strong outlines in this work create a pretty picture of some buildings by a channel of water that could be crossed over by a stone bridge—a very European snapshot of a town.
