K H Ara
Untitled (Nude)


Ara's nudes were "...massive bodies, usually with their backs to the viewer. The folds of flesh rarely arouse any tenderness or even titillation. Indeed, if anything, they create a feeling of a spreading largeness that can take over the entire pictorial space." (Yashodhara Dalmia, "The Stillness of Life: Krishnaji Howlaji Ara", The Making of Modern Indian Art: The Progressives, New Delhi: Oxford University Press, 2001, p. 135)
