Description

Samir Mondal(1952) : Born in Balti, West Bengal, Samir Mondal graduated from The Government arts college, Calcutta in 1975.  Samir Mondal's most amazing contribution is a continual revival of water colour. He has endowed water colours with the status of oils, projecting a facet of water colour that was never visualized before. The artist keenly observed the characteristics of oil-painting, noted the inherent quality of oils, their richness and substance. In his endeavour to include these elements in water colour, he developed textures and structural features as if they are oils. Samir Mondal has stood the test of this fantastic versatility. His water colours have never lost their originality, their innovativeness and their classic elegance, yet they are truly modern paintings. He has held numerous solo shows and participated in many important group exhibitions in major cities around the world.

This painting is part of  a series of paintings inspired by teracotta clay toys executed by the artist in 1997.
