Description: M. SENATHIPATHI (B. India, 1939) Face, 1998 Signed and dated “M. Senathipathi 98” on lower right Watercolour on paper 27 x 24 cm

Condition Report: Signed and dated “M. Senathipathi 98” on lower right

Notes: Senathipathi is one of the strongest and most individual figurative painters in Chennai. Key to the thematic interests of his art is his village upbringing. Senathipathi’s art is one built on fluid, lyrical line, brilliant and wisely-choreographed colour and dense pattern. This style is no doubt inspired in part by his early teachers, K.C.S. Paniker and the established and talented figurative artist, A.P. Santhanaraj. His subjects vary from Hindu mythological images such as Krishna and the Cows and Ganesha to sensitive portraits of village couples and musicians, from pictures of friends together or women at rest, play, or with child, through to painterly definitions of abstract ideas and emotions such as insecurity, love or fear.
