- Oil on canvas. 103.5 x 103.5 cm. Devinder and Kanwaldeep Sahney © Estate of Bhupen Khakhar.
This painting draws on a style of colonial Anglo-Indian painting popular in the 18th century that aimed to objectively record facets of Indian life, in particular different trades. Khakhar adapts the formal tone of these paintings to his unique style, creating an image full of fantasy and humour. With bubble-gum pink floor and green walls, it eschews realism in favour of capturing a deeper sense of truth.
