The panoramic view was a popular compositional device of the early twentieth century painters in India, including M. K. Parandekar who painted the land with an intimacy and passion that was rare and marked him as a genius in the genre. One of the first few plein air artists of India, Parandekar worked outdoors to create stunning visuals through a colour palette that revealed a fragrance of Indian landscape that others struggled to capture. This Untitled (Landscape) painting bears testimony to the artist’s remarkable skill.
