Oil and stone granules on Masonite board

An unusual painting by Sunil Madhav Sen, this Untitled work shows the artist’s willingness to experiment with styles, genres, and mediums. Painting at a time when most artists were seeking ways to represent an Indian modernism, Sen’s work is both obliquely and unambiguously Indian. He renders in this Untitled painting, a figure taken from Indian sculptural tradition but created in keeping with the strength of the artist’s linear shapes and lines. His experimentation with stone granules lends to an even more extraordinary charm in the painting.
