Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Private Collection, Switzerland; acquired directly from the artist.

    At the beginning of the 1980s Raza experienced a transition in his artwork while reflecting upon the presence of his Indian origins in his painting. This 1982 work, one of the first in which the artist used acrylic instead of his usual oil, combines the frenzied brushstrokes of his iconic landscapes with a more precise framing of elements, highlighting the artificiality of the canvas and foreshadowing the artist's aesthetic of the coming years. As such the painting represents a gateway between his earlier abstract expressionist paintings and his later geometric works. The vibrant colour palette can be attributed both to Raza's perception of the spirit and vigor of the Indian land, and the influence the artist found from Jain and Rajasthani miniatures.
