N. R. Sardesai
12.7 x 19.7 in. / 32.3 x 50.0 cm.
Watercolour on paper pasted on mount board
A painter in the style of the Bombay School, N. R. Sardesai’s portraits and landscapes found their way into homes and museums, while his watercolours of subaltern subjects documented a way of life that rarely caught the attention of artists. His landscapes, particularly, boasted of a remarkable softness and luminosity that caught the viewers’ attention. In this Untitled landscape, too, Sardesai works in a vivid colour palette to create fluid contours of a landscape that is created in a moment in time but eventually becomes timeless.
