Bikash Bhattacharjee was one of India's finest classical modernist painters. His work was a window into the life of the average middle-class Bengali in a style that was simultaneously traditional and realist. This pastel on paperwork from circa 1992 demonstrates Bhattacharjee's preoccupation with female beauty. He explores the textural effects of crayons, pastels, and pencil in his canvases with a mastery over capturing the quality of light
