SAYED HAIDER RAZA    (1922-2016)

Sayed Haider Raza was an Indian painter who lived and worked in France from 1950 until his death,
while maintaining strong ties with India.
While in France he experimented with currents of Western Modernism,
moving from Expressionist modes towards greater abstraction.
In the 1980s he eventually put in discussion his own existing work and
had a radical switch of style incorporating element of Tantrism
in what himself called “Bindu”, his rebirth as an artist, coming back to his Indian roots.
He was awarded several prizes in India and he was conferred with Legion d'honneur in France.
