Portrait of an Indian Lady, 20th Century Indian School, oil on Daler board.
Dimensions : 450mm x 350mm.
Condition/Notes : The oil painting is in good condition, impasto, impressionist portrait study of an Indian lady against an intentionally sombre back-drop (as a relief to the intense light of out-doors). The painting is unfortunately unsigned. The painting was executed on imported Daler board - hence the old backing label. There is an upward bowing to the lower quarter of the board probably caused by atmospheric/humidity changes between India and UK but this can be corrected by framing. The painting has been very lightly varnished. The back of the board has the original Daler label and the upper lh corner has been torn away. An interesting study which captures the true spirit of India.
