V. Nageshkar, among the earliest Indian modernists to travel to Europe to study art, found a way to paint while retaining a measure of balance and a sense of movement, considered the measuring yard of a ‘superior painting’ in traditional Indian art. Nageshkar, who studied at Sir J. J. School of Art, Bombay, evolved a rich visual language that was inspired by European masters and influenced by the artistic movements of the West. That said, his paintings retained an Indianness, as seen in this Untitled work.
