My Favorite: S.H. Raza

For me, owning a Raza would be a dream come true. He is my favorite Indian artist for his use of dramatic, yet, complimentary colors in Westernized (he is settled in France) calming expressions. From these 4 paintings alone, you can notice a clear shift in Raza's art from his earlier days to his more recent works.
