Somnath Hore’s art practice was western and academic in style. He was interested in humanist themes, and his works often involved the world of painting and printmaking with sculptural, textural prints that resonated with his feelings of anger and pain. His subject matter drew attention to the life of people in Bengal; the impoverished and suffering social class represented the pain caused from the Famine of 1943.
This lot comprises of two artworks. 16 x 12.5 in. ; 13 x 8.5 in.
