Sudhir Ranjan Khastgir
23.7 x 35.5 in. / 60.2 x 90.2 cm.
Oil and oil pastel on Masonite board
Sudhir Khastgir creates in this landscape a vision of India that many of us see even today in parts of Bengal and Kerala where coconut and date trees are used by people to make toddy, palm sap and jaggery. In part-impressionist, part-fauvist style, Khastgir presents in front of us a landscape that he renders with immense care and precision, and with a lightness of touch while using the medium. The artist uses yellow, his favourite pigment, in this painting as he does in several others.
