Title: Badami Lady with watermelons
Medium: Charcoal and Pastel on Paper
Dimensions: 17 X 13 inches
Badami was the hometown of Hadapad and the artist in Mani made painting the simple folk people his lifetime obsession. His body of work spans his adult lifetime. He has shown Badami men and women most often in a seated pose selling flowers, garlands, fruits, roosters….living a slow paced life. Mani’s repetitiveness of this theme underscores his own longing for a type of life that now belongs to the past. This artwork will be shipped rolled with Crimson’s certificate of authenticity.
