No LIVE bidding. Raza is the most important artist of the 20th century in his native India. Our three paintings belong to the first Western phase of his work. Studying painting in Bombay, then in Paris from 1950 onwards, he progressively shifted from natural, constructive and colorful landscapes to an abstraction then dominant in Paris in the 1950s and 1960s. Our three works belong to this period where nature mutated into signs or fluid forms bathed in incandescent light. During his return to India and the reappropriation of the philosophy of his origins, this effusive energy will be concentrated in a formally different and geometric painting: that of the Bindu, the great black point, from which the genesis of creation is born, first the light, then the forms and colors, but also the vibrations, energy, sound, space, time.
