Wow, I grew up in New Haven and spent many hours at the Center for British Art, but I never saw anything like this strange and compelling painting.

What a grand scene, Debu. Thanks for showing this one.

Nomi, Andrew,

Thanks for your comments! My apologies for replying so late, I was busy and almost offline for the project in hand.

Debu, I finally went to see this show. This painting is quite something. More orange/pink than this photo, with that orange/pink almost functioning as a kind of neutral with the sparkling whites acting more as "color." Very interesting.

Nomi,

Awesome to know that you actually visited this show!
Ohh, I can imagine it more orange/pink...these are colors from my region within India- historical context of this particular painting.
Thank you so much for informing
