Oil on board

Sushil Chandra Sen was one of the pioneers of Bengal School, painting in the manner that was inspired by Abanindranath Tagore. Sen, for whom artist Mukul Dey was a major influence, painted pastoral and urban landscapes. He was known for not just landscapes but also intimate household scenes, social and religious functions, street scenes and riversides, the last of which is seen in this Untitled painting. In a vivid colour palette, the scene resembles a picture postcard, perfectly balanced and rendered with precision.
