'Untitled' (Portrait of a Woman) (1962) by A.P. Santhanaraj, ink on paper, 14 x 22 inches unframed,

Achieved in felt tip pen, this is a stunning example of Santhanaraj's use of abstract shapes to evolve a figure from the light space of the paper. The artist saw this emergence (that would take him by surprise often) as nothing less than the hand of God.
