Description

About the Artist

Born in 1924 in Saligao, Goa, Francis Newton Souza is one of the most prominent Indian painters and the founding member of Progressive Artists Group of Bombay along with S.H Raza, M.F Husain and K.H Ara. He was perhaps the first Indian painter to have used acrylic paints as early as in the 1960s. The subjects covered in his paintings comprise of still life, landscapes, nudes and icons of Christianity. One of his most recurring themes is that of the conflicts between a man-woman relationship. F.N Souza’s paintings express defiance and impatience with convention and with the banality of everyday life and there is a visible influence of the folk art of Goa, the Renaissance paintings, landscapes of the 18th and 19th century Europe. His works were part of several successful exhibitions around the world and adorn the walls of several prestigious museums all around the world. F.N Souza passed away in March 2002.
