Signed and dated 'Souza 88’ (lower left)
Acquired directly from the artist
F.N. Souza's free and graphic style created thought-provoking and powerful images. His repertoire of subjects covered still-life, landscape, nudes, religious icons, and striking heads rendered boldly in a frenzied distortion of form. His works expressed defiance of norms and flouted existing conventions and rules of society.
Bearing a similar structure to his earlier heads, the current image is rendered with distinctive eyes placed high in the forehead with exposed grinding teeth that evokes the aura of grimness and menace.
