CATALOGUE NOTESG.R. Santosh was a poet-painter who began his career painting landscapes in Kashmir before being spotted by S. H. Raza who encouraged him to study at the Maharaja Sayajirao University at Baroda under N. S. Bendre. He started painting figurative and abstract works before he completely switched to tantra inspired works in 1964. Santosh dedicated the rest of his life to study and practice Tantra. This particular work has a muted colour palette with subdued tones.
