Creating drawings in bold, elegant, strong lines, the animals in Gopal Sanyal’s art appeared moody, fragile, dark and in discomfort. Animals became symbols of human suffering in Sanyal’s art, showing how the artist turned an incisive gaze into humanism in art, which was the prime focus of the artist collective Calcutta Group, of which he was a founding member. This was the tragic survival of people that was reflected through the animals, mostly shown pregnant, vulnerable, as if navigating through a treacherous, apocalyptic journey.
