I was recently contacted by a lady called Margaret who lived in India between 1947 and 1965 her parents were working there. She owns two paintings by Thyagaraj which were acquired by her parents. She spent some time in Calcutta and recently came across my blog and contacted me by email. I am adding the first of her two paintings today showing several women collecting water from a tank and climbing a steep flight of stairs. It is signed in the lower right hand corner.
This is a nice colourful painting having preserved its colours after so many years. Thanks to Margaret for letting me add it to the blog.
