Biswanath Mukerji



7.5 x 9.0 in. / 19.1 x 22.9 cm.


Watercolour wash on paper pasted on board

As one of India’s eminent abstract artists, Biswanath Mukerji, belonging to the neo-Bengal School, created abstract landscapes where he rendered light without the use of the usual white paint but by allowing the paleness of the paper surface to show through the pigment layers. This gave his work a mystical quality, allowing the viewer to experience a sense of serenity and calmness. Cubism was his preferred style and with watercolour as his preferred medium, he created the most extraordinary works of serene abstraction.
