S H Raza
The Artist (Somnath Butt)


The present lot is a portrait of Somnath Butt, an artist from Kashmir. In 1948, Butt founded a collective called the Progressive Artists' Association, with artists Triloke Kaul and P N Kachru. Raza, who happened to be travelling in Kashmir the same year, saw Butt's paintings at an exhibition organised by the Association. It is likely that they formed a friendship, and Raza painted this portrait as an homage to his fellow artist.
