A friend of mine recently found a painting that she loved – something about it that resonated with her. It was indeed a lovely painting of a women who seemed down to earth with just a hint of rebelliousness. The painting was signed “Abhijit Sen”, so I thought I’d try to find some more paintings by him.
Turned out that Abhijit Sen (which is a very common name) had copied from a panting of another master Subrata Gangopadhyay.
And when I saw the original of the same panting done by Subrata, I was awe struck! It had so much texture and depth and emotions in it!
He has a series of paintings with a “women” theme and each one of is exquisit.
Here are some that depict saree in a very fluid way.
