Like many of his other contemporaries, Sunil Madhav Sen, too, turned to biblical and Christian themes in his art, rendering many of the important episodes through his own, unique pictorial lens. His search and experimentation with both Western and indigenous styles, allowed him to evolve a personal interpretation of Indian ‘modernity’. Sen’s passage from academic naturalism to Indian folk tradition via European cubistic and expressionistic features and his organic synthesis of all these elements informed his art, creating a new artistic dimension, which is visible in Christ.
