PROSHANTO ROY (1908-1973) Untitled signed in Bengali (lower left) watercolor on paper 12½ x 9½ in. (31.8 x 24.1 cm.)
Manifestations V, Delhi Art Gallery, New Delhi, 2011 (illustrated)
Proshanto Roy developed a highly unique and distinct style which combined cubist abstraction with the Bengal school wash technique. A student of Abanindranath and Gaganendranath Tagore's Jorasanko Atelier, Roy reveled in the wash technique for the number of layers and gradations it could create in a painting. Limiting his palette to only a few colors, Roy's jewel-like paintings referenced fairytales and magical landscapes. 'In this watercolor, Roy has created a dreamy scene with a star - and moonlit sky. It provides the illusion of an unfolding dream, encompassing the world and the space beyond [...] If one looks closely, the entire architectural space is composed of elaborately overlapping and inter-penetrating geometrical designs, or cubes, lending an impression of flickering complexity.' (Manifestations - V: 20th Century Indian Art, New Delhi, 2011, p. 147)
