About the artist
Maite Delteil born in 1933 in France, Maite’s work has a languid quality and an old world charm. Her subjects are seemingly simple like landscapes and figuration but the artist uses them as a means to explore the depth of her thoughts. The detailing and expressive use of colour belies a profound thought process. The tranquility and stillness in her works are almost unreal; this leads to a picture-perfect quality in all her works. Based in India as well as in Paris, she is one of the finest women artists of her generation.
