'Untitled (Kneeling nude)' (1971) by A.P. Santhanaraj, ink on paper, 9 x 11 inches unframed, SANT004

This early piece shows the artist at his very best creating contorted (but accurate) figural form from abstract shapes. I enjoy the dots used by the artist to represent necklaces and other ornamentation
