Fishermen's Village, Dar es Salaam, impasto gouache on wooden board, signed Naresh lower rh corner. c1965.
Dimensions : 443mm x 625mm x 5mm. Weight : 1.040kg net.
Condition/Notes : Good. The impasto gouache Impressionist study entitled Fishermen's Village Dar es Salaam is in good condition with good colour and no paint loss or damage except for a small 8mm x 3mm chip on the upper lh edge which has revealed the wooden base. This will normally be covered by the frame so of no real concern. The gouache painting is an unusual vibrant Impressionist study of an East African village filled with activity and motion capturing the vitality of this tropical region interpreted by this known Ugandan-Asian artist utilizing the typical South Asian medium of gouache. The painting is signed Naresh in the lower lh corner. Sengupta worked in various South Asian locations following his expulsion from Uganda in 1972. Verso has a label attached which appears to be an exhibition entry form detailing " Name : N. Sengupta, Medium : Gouache, Box No. 2153, Town : Kampala, Title : Fishermens Village (Dar es Salaam), ......section missing, Surname Initial : "S".." hence confirming that the date of event was pre - 1972. Some water marking and general wear to the board but no further script. A very interesting and attractive work.
