A A Raiba
Untitled


Like many of India's leading modernists, Raiba found a mentor in art critic Walter Langhammer, who advised him to explore India in order to discover his own pictorial language. Raiba travelled across the country, finding inspiration in both architecture and nature. He used jute as a support for some paintings, and the medium lent itself well to achieving a coarse, textured quality, as seen in the present lot.
