Oil on canvas, titled on stretcher "Old Man With Sarangi", 22 1/2" by 16 1/2" in narrow wood strip frame, signed at lower left by noted Indian artist PARSHOTAM SINGH (born 1935). Note the deft palette knife work, and, considering the subdued palette and handling, the resemblance to works by the great Maqbool Fida Husain. The "sarangi" is a musical instrument from India used in Hindustani classical music. Its sound is said to resemble the sound of the human voice. Singh attended the Government College of Arts and Crafts in Calcutta. He had 17 one man shows and wrote articles on art for both national and international publications. Singh worked for Uttar Pradesh Railways but drifted toward art, working for galleries in Delhi. He operated an art college in Agra between 1965 and 1975. There is a difficult to discern rubber stamp from an Indian gallery on the edge of the frame.
