Untitled
19.5 x 28.6 inch (h x w)
Watercolour on paper

A rare work in water colour, this untitled painting by Chittaprosad is as beautiful and as inexplicable as a dreamscape. A man riding a horse that looks distinctly wooden appears to point a spear at a dragon who occupies the right thirds of the paintings, its long tail meandering into the horizon. Between them stand three women with fixed expressions. Although such an arrangement would normally suggest some threat that is posed to them, their faces seem to contradict that possibility. They appear, rather, to be modelled on the traditional carved wooden dolls that are ubiquitous in Bengal's villages. In his later years, as Chittaprosad turned to creating art for children, he begins to venture into the realm of “free play,” ungoverned by rules even of his own making. Dolls, puppets and other figures that suggest the uncanny possibility of an interplay between stasis and movement appear to have caught his imagination - as it did for other artists like Abanindranath Tagore or M.F. Husain in their later years.
