    Hi artists/art lovers,

    I will be grateful if one of you can help me in identifying a painting. I saw a picture in a glossy magazine many years ago, and somehow forgot the name.

    I am quite sure it is by an Indian artist with a Western name (like Dsouza). It is the picture of a young boy, a brahmin boy wearing a thread and standing in a temple. It is very stark and striking, powerful in its simplicity.

    I wish to buy a print of this. Pls get back to me with the name.

    affly
    Vidya

    Hi
    From your description of the painting i infer that the artist is Anjolie Ela Menon.
    She did a brahmin series in late 1980s - stark, stunning, figurative paintings of lonely young brahmins( thread, veshti, kudumi), vacant eyed and pensive, standing by bare walls or ancient doorways. Anjolie was much celebrated for her clean flowing lines and total absence of decorative flourishes.
    Souza's figures were more abstract and robust.

    thank you

    Hi Vidyasarada,

    Thank you for the valuable tip off. I am almost certain that you have led me to the right painting. I checked out Anjolie's online gallery and from the figures I see there, I am quite convinced. I could not find her Brahmin series, let me look further. I did find another one by Anjolie, 'The Pujari's House' which I hope to buy first (affordable reprint). Thanks again, I have been looking for this for years now.

    warm regards
    Vidya
