Lot description
Often referred to as "The Picasso of India", this celebratory figurative watercolor on paper is by famed Indian artist Sakti Burman (b. 1935) and encapsulates the very best of the artist's painterly style, developed over the past five decades of living in France and India. The joie de' vivre of this figurative work that feels like an outdoor circus festival is nearly tangible, painted in washed of pinks, with tinges of blues and greens with highly detailed figures rendered in black ink, giving this work a feeling of a fantasy-world in full bloom. Burman's work is held in the permanent collections of top Private and Museum including Tate Gallery, London; Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, France; National Gallery of New Zealand, Auckland; and National Gallery of Modern Art, India, amongst others. This painting measures 20 x 25.25 inches (51 x 64 cm), is framed to larger dimensions and is in excellent condition.

Sakti Burman was born in Calcutta, India in 1935 had his first solo exhibition in 1954, and since then has exhibited widely across the world. Over the years, he has held prestigious Museum and gallery exhibitions and his works are in the permanent collections of the Tate Gallery, London; the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, France; the National Gallery of New Zealand, Auckland; Allahabad Museum, India; the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi. Burman graduated from the Calcutta College of Arts and Crafts in 1956. His studies continued at L’Ecole Nationale Superieure des Baux Arts in Paris, France.
