Description: Untitled
watercolour on paper

Notes: "I sometimes wonder what it would be like if one somehow cast all Sakti's work into
the same format, join one segment to the next, and turn it into one long, unending
scroll. And then spread it out, and see it: His floating world. I think one would sense a
lyrical stream running through it: Of poetry, of tenderness, above all of vismaya , that
elevating sense of wonder that our texts speak of." Excerpt, The Wonder of It All, an
essay on Sakti Burman, by eminent art historian B.N. Goswami, rpt. in The Hindu,
6th May 2012

Provenance: From a private collection in Mumbai

Artist or Maker: Sakti Burman (b. 1935)
