Though he studied directly under Abanindranath Tagore and imbibed the richness of the Bengal School style of painting, Sudhir Khastgir’s real asset as a modern Indian artist was his deeply personal and intensely individualistic visual vocabulary. Working on a variety of mediums to understand their impact on the surface, Khastgir always remained a curious painter. He creates here a Buddha-like figure, deep in meditation, nearing the nirvana state, which Khastgir shows interestingly—continuously enlarging the outline of the face to cover the entire surface of the painting.
