This beautiful painting entitled Agony, invokes a feeling of intense sadness that clutches at the heart. Tiger uses a mixture of blue on blue for a mood of stark misery. The painting is at once warm and cold. There is a feeling of cold despair and yet the emotion being felt by the man brings forth sympathy in any viewer who has suffered loss or grief.

The universal appeal of Tiger’s work speaks to people of all races through its beauty and deep spirituality. His style has had a tremendous major influence in the development of contemporary Indian art influencing other Indian artists who succeeded him. Since 1970, thirty-three of Tiger’s paintings have been reproduced as limited edition lithographs. Many of the lithographs are sold-out and are only available on the secondary market.

Condition: Excellent – original condition.  This lithograph is protected with acid free foam core board and shrink wrapped.
Provenance: Maintained in the same family gallery since purchased from the artist’s widow in Oklahoma.
