Tyeb Mehta
Trussed Bull


"Mehta accepts the necessity of art-historical cross-referencing but privileges the analytical mode of structuring references. He thus makes the sources formally coeval and the image symbolic in the universal sense of that term. Tyeb Mehta`s inscription of a figural metaphor for terror on a brilliantly painted ground reads like a death mask in the context of twentieth-century art." (Geeta Kapoor, "When was Modernism", 2000)
