"In Search of Peace-IV" is a major oil painting by famed Indian Contemporary artist Sanjay Bhattacharya. Looking for harmony and peace, as the title here suggests, this painting underscores the artist's ongoing exploration and celebration of the natural order of things and in the quiet beauty of the simple, everyday objects and details such as the pattern and color of this stone wall, the contrast of the whitewashed and the terra-cotta surfaces, the play of light and dark, negative and positive space, with focus on the left of a close-up detail of a bronze ring, in contrast to the general, overall scene that is depicted at right. This close-up detail is painted in a quiet manner, so that at first glance this contrast of the specific versus the general is not perceived.

The influence of famed Bengal artists Bikash Bhattacharya and Ganesh Pyne, as well inspired by the works of Dali and Rembrandt, Sanjay Bhattacharya's main themes are about city life versus rural life in India, where inanimate objects figure prominently. Bhattacharya has participated in select Museum and Gallery exhibitions in India and world-wide, represented by top galleries in the US, Europe and India. His works are in select private and public collections including The World Bank and The Parliament House, Delhi. The artist has had solo exhibitions in 2011 and 2010 at top galleries where he is formally represented at Aicon Gallery, NY USA and Arushi Art, New Delhi India. In 1994 the artist had his first major solo Museum exhibition, "Landscape of Man" at the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi. The artist graduated with a degree in painting from the Government College of Art and Craft , Kolkata, India.
