Untitled (Sati) und weitere Werke von Nandalal Bose

Untitled (Sati) , 1910
9.7 x 6.7 x 1 inch (h x w x d)
Mechanical reproduction (Kokka woodblock print pasted on paper)

Through his range of experiments, Nandalal Bose is known to have arrived at a style of his own – a canonised, indigenous form associated with the nationalist movement and the search for a rooted Indian identity. That he experimented in various mediums, made him a versatile artist. Presented here is a Japanese influenced woodblock print of one of his iconic works – Sati. It was created for the Japanese publication Kokka (or National Essence) that showcased Asian art. Rendered in earthy tones of ochres and browns, the work, with an image of a woman performing the ritual, is indeed striking.
