SAYED HAIDER RAZA (1922-2016) "ANKURAN". ACRYLIC ON CANVAS, SIGNED ON BOTTOM RIGHT, DATED 92

Size: 15 x 31 inches

Provenance:

Acquired from a French collection

Footnotes:

In the context of S.H. Raza's densely textured impasto landscapes from the mid-
1950s, Jacques Lassaigne, the then director of the Museum of Modern Art in Paris,
eloquently observes, "…throughout his persistent endeavours to delve into and rejuvenate
his artistic vision, Raza has steadfastly adhered to the trajectory of exploration he initially
charted for himself. The apparent disparity between his present canvases and his earlier
gouaches reflects a transition from a technique where delicacy of touch reigns supreme to a
more intricate and opulent approach demanding the full array of the artist's mastery…Pure
forms cease to materialize in a vacuum; instead, they manifest in revelatory contrast with
their surroundings, bathed in a luminosity that triumphs with double brilliance against the
encroaching opacity that seeks to dim it."
