'Although he was only in his mid-20s, Mr. Kallat's work looked so fully resolved that it was a little hard to imagine where he might take it from there... On the evidence of this show, Mr. Kallat is surely and steadily developing into the kind of history painter he clearly aspires to be.' (Holland Cotter, Art in Review; Jitish Kallat - First Information Report, The New York Times, October 18, 2020, reprinted in Natasha Ginwalla, ed., Jitish Kallat, Mapin Publishing, 2018, p. 138)
The colours of the illustration are similar to the catalogue illustration but the blues of the original are slightly richer than the catalogue illustration. The artist's method of paint application creates a highly textured surface which is not apparent in the catalogue illustration. Overall good condition.
