After his visits to India in 1960s and 70s, Raza shifted his interest back in mapping the terrain and colours of the land of his birth, Madhya Pradesh, India. La Terre, and its variations done over the course of time tell the tales of Raza’s exploration of the sights of Central India. Here, we see earthy colours of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan in the scorched reds, yellows, dense browns and black.

In addition to Raza’s innate Indian sensibility, which has constantly informed his palette, the artist explains that his work from this period was “…the result of two parallel inquiries. Firstly, it aimed at pure plastic order, form order. Secondly it concerns the theme of nature. Both have converged into a single point and become inseparable…” (as quoted in Geeti Sen’s, Bindu: Space and Time in Raza’s Vision)
