Description: SOBHA SINGH (1901-1986) SEE INDIA / NORTH - WEST FRONTIER. Circa 1935.
38 3/4x25 3/4 inches, 98 1/2x65 cm. Bolton Fine Art, Bombay.
Condition B+: repaired tears at edges, some affecting image.
A geographical region within India until 1947, the North-West Frontier Province is now a part of Pakistan. Depicted here is a pre-partition scene of the Khyber Pass, which connects the region with Afghanistan. The poster, like a Rudyard Kipling story, highlights both the geological wonders of the region as well as the exotic, tribal nature of the local cultures. While the mountainous region between India and Pakistan has taken on a whole new geo-political significance in today's world, for centuries the region has been both an active trading route and a strategic gateway for invading armies.
