A student of academic realism who stayed true to his learning throughout his career, Satish Sinha’s subjects came from life around him. Besides the portraits of ordinary yet striking women that he made, regular rural and urban folk going about their daily activities inspired many of his works, such as this Untitled portrait of a Baul singer—from the community of minstrels comprising both Hindus and Muslims and spread in present-day West Bengal, concomitant parts of north-eastern India, and Bangladesh. Sinha’s felicity with the line and his shading skills are evident in the figure playing an ektara (one-string instrument).
