'Untitled (Nude at stage III)' (1996) by A.P. Santhanaraj, ink on paper, 14.5 x 16 inches unframed,

One of the true treasures of the collection, this drawing is a stunning example of Santhanaraj, the teacher. This work must be part of a teaching session where this is the third stage of abstraction where lines are slowly giving way to a figurative finish. Previous drawings in this series would have been more 'absract in attempt' as the artist writes next to the drawing.
