Sushil Chandra Sen, a trained artist who completed his fine arts education in Calcutta’s art school, creates here an impressive portrait of an ordinary man. The Untitled drawing shows the skill of the artist and the command he has to create the facial expressions along with the other finer details—the folds of the head scarf, the hair, the expressive eyes in a contemplative gaze. Here is an ordinary person who is probably struggling as he gazes into nothingness with tremendous concentration.
