The Artwork

Dalhousie is a hill-station in India amidst the Himalayas. This painting captures a moment experienced by twin daughters, during their visit to this beautiful hill-station. On the final day of their stay, they encountered this beautiful golden langur (Monkey) sited on the table of their hotel room and eating the bandannas and potato chips which my daughters had bought for their homeward journey also, taking sips of water from the flower vase and putting the flowers back in the vase properly like a gentleman. This painting tries to capture the amazement and delight in the dialogue of my daughters while narrating this story to us and the memories of the beautiful wood cabin, where they stayed, overlooking the magnificent Himalayas.

The Artist

Pronab Baruah is an artist from Jorhat, India
They say I drew very well before I could read or write. Nature has never ceased to fascinate me probably because Assam is richly endowed with it. Trees, sky, landscapes, flowers all of these captivate me. Certain human emotions have stirred me as I have been growing older. All of these, I believe have a texture as rich as classical music has nuances. My favorite medium is watercolor as it creates atmospheric effects very well. To lend texture to some of my works I paste fabric with texture on paper.
