Francis Newton Souza (1924 - 2002) UNTITLED (LANDSCAPE) Signed and dated 'Souza 55' lower right Gouache and graphite on paper 37.4 by 54.5 cm. (14 ⅝ by 21 ½ in.) Executed in 1955 Read Condition Report Read Condition Report Register or Log-in to view condition report Saleroom Notice Provenance Acquired in Paris circa 1955 Thence by descent Whilst living in London, Souza travelled around Europe and his townscapes from this time were often inspired by the ecclesiastical architecture he encountered as reminders of the Roman Catholic churches from his native Goa. During the 1950s, Souza's landscapes followed a simple rectilinear structure of buildings punctuated by angular sparsely leaved trees. The palette of these early works was indicative of the artist's interest in stained-glass windows, with luminous hues framed by dark outlines. Rudi von Leyden's review of Souza's exhibition in Bombay highlighted these qualities, 'Francis Newton's paintings, perturbing and bewildering to many reveal nevertheless the talent of a strong willed and imaginative artist... he confesses to the fascination of church music and stained glass windows. The luminous mosaic technique of the latter he employs under the influence of Rouault without imitating. The total effect of this exhibition with its turbulence of colour, is exciting and soothing at the same time.' (The Times of India, November, 1948). This work is mounted and framed behind glass. There are minor spots of foxing on the mount due to age. There are pin holes present in all four corners of the work, most probably when the artist was creating it. There is very minor craquelure in the thicker areas of paint, most notably on the trees. There are pin hole sized areas of loss, only noticeable upon very close inspection. The paper is slightly undulated. This work is good overall condition, as viewed.

Lot Description FRANCIS NEWTON SOUZA (1924-2002) The Butcher signed and dated 'Souza 62' (upper right) oil on satin 81¼ x 44 1/8 in. (206.4 x 112.1 cm.) Painted in 1962 Provenance Grosvenor Gallery, London Schuster Gallery, Detroit Formerly in the collection of Kamla and Maddipoti Choudry, New York Acquired from the above by the present owner This work is illustrated in the consignment listing of Eugene I. Schuster, London Arts Group, Detroit Pre-Lot Text It becomes increasingly clear [...] that Souza is concerned with creating a conditioned reflex in the mind of the spectator. Just as in the treatment of some aspects of pathology electrical shock is administered to make the patient's mind function, Souza, too, subjects his audience to a kind of shock treatment. In fact, he makes the audience see the relationship between themselves and the subject matter. (R. Bartholomew, 'Souza's Shock Treatment', Times of India, 3 February, 1973) Literature India: Contemporary Art from Northeastern Private Collections, Rutgers, 2002, p. 113 (illustrated) A.

I would like my paintings to disturb the calm, the smug – in fact they do and that is why I am described by a German critic as a painter who makes Expressionists look friendly! (F.N.
