PASTEL ON PAPER

In his lesser-known coloured paintings, Chittaprosad comes across as an artist experimenting with projections of his own imagination rather than an artist for the public. These works, the majority of which are landscapes, are testament to his mastery over different visual idioms - ranging from the Bengal School’s lyrical romanticism to the early Impressionists and even hints of Van Gogh. In his later years, as Chittaprosad consciously moved away from political and art institutions, it became increasingly difficult for him to find patronage. His coloured works perhaps give us a glimpse into his evolving artistic practice within a more personal, intimate space.

Barring a touch of royal blue in the distance, the sky appears to have ‘burst into a conflagration,’ which casts a golden hue across the fields in the foreground. Art historian Sanjoy K. Mallik notes that their geometric faceting defies strict Cubist logic and ‘aspires for the expressive nuances of liberated colour harmonies.’
