Shanti Dave (b. 1931)
Untitled, 1969
Oil and encaustic on canvas; signed and dated 'Shanti Dave 69' center right.
35 x 31 1/2 in. (89 x 80 cm)


  • The widely acclaimed Shanti Dave, born in North Gujarat, is famed for his colossal murals and his use of unconventional materials, such as encaustic here giving the piece its weight and depth. His paintings show a blend of western expressionism and Indian metaphysics, often incorporating tantric elements and earthy obscurity. Compare with another work from the same period sold in our London rooms May 21, 2007, lot 139.
