Akbar Padamsee continued to return to painting faces in his career. The paintbrush in his hand glided on the canvas creating works that connected instantly with the viewer. This Untitled work is an example of the artist’s excellence in portraying the human face with special focus on the features, including the sharply contoured nose, the perfectly shaped eyes, strong jawline, mouth, and cheeks, broad forehead… For someone who employed mathematical calculations to study his canvas, this portrait shows the precision with which the artist understood area and space in painting.
