Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Private UK collection: thought to have been acquired from the Indian dancer Bissano Ram Gopal around thirty years ago.

    Paritosh Sen was one of the founding members of the Calcutta Group in 1942, the members of which did much to introduce modernism to Indian art. During his early career Sen studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and the Ecole des Louvres in Paris and was heavily influenced by European Impressionist painters such as Claude Monet, Henri Matisse and Paul Cezanne.

    Mussoorie is a hill station in the foothills of the Himalayan mountain range in the Indian state of Uttarakhand and is also known as 'The Queen of the Hills'.

    This painting is part of a collection of works thought to have been given to the current owners parents around thirty years ago by the Indian dancer Bissano Ram Gopal who toured extensively throughout the USA and Europe and who amassed an eclectic collection of items including modern Indian paintings and French furniture.
