Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Private Swiss collection. Acquired directly from the artist.

    Swaminathan states: 'In the late 1960s, I tried to probe the relation of colour to space and after a study of Pahari miniatures did a series called Geometry of Space. After the Colour Geometry show I entered the now famous phase of the bird, the mountain, the tree, the reflection, the shadow, and it lasted for quite a while… However, the obsession was wonderful while it lasted and what better tribute would a painter want than a letter from a collector saying that my work brought peace and tranquillity into her house.' (Lalit Kala Contemporary, Issue 40, March 1995, New Delhi, p.11).
