‘Apsara’
Sunil Madhav Sen

Sunil Madhav Sen, as a founder member of the Calcutta Group – India 's first avowedly ‘modernist' school of painters – was one of the architects of the contemporary art movement in India . His search for a modernist language in art, led him to experiment with both Western and indigenous styles, and to eventually develop his own creative idiom. His passage from academic naturalism to Indian folk tradition via European cubistic and expressionistic features and his organic synthesis of all these elements evolves in his work into a truly personal interpretation of Indian ‘modernity'.

His art encompasses a huge expressive spectrum, from simple linear depictions, ink and wash techniques and relief paintings in mosaic, to metal collage; and from serene landscapes, ebullient nudes, and decorative mythological portrayals of nymphs, Gods and frolicking Urvashis, to figures from daily life, and dramatically modern interpretations of a fish or a musician.

Sometimes his compositions are adorned with an exuberance of fresco-like detail, but his method being not ‘mimesis' but personal vision, even conventional themes acquire a singular life and a wonderful sense of movement. Some of his works exude a sculptural quality, and some conceptualizations reflect a startlingly radical ‘modernity'. All his work however bears the impress of his singularly vivacious personality and mirrors his great love and enjoyment of life.

In the words of Dr. Klaus Fischer “The expression of the Eastern mind is not by copying Ajanta, Ellura and other glories of the past, but by adding new moderns … Marvelous nude compositions by Sunil Madhav Sen prove that there are forms of International understanding in modern imaginative art.”
