Though his training in art was intermittent due to financial constraints, Satish Sinha was a gifted artist who mastered the tenets of academic realism early on in his career, having trained under J. P. Gangooly and Percy Brown, and later, with Hemendranath Majumdar. He was particularly a master at realistic depiction of the female body, engaged in various daily chores, including nursing, as shown in this Untitled lithograph. The realistic posture of the young, hardworking mother is rendered charming by the tenderness with which the baby clutches the mother’s necklace while suckling—an unparalleled intimate mother-child moment.
