There are very few contemporary artists in India that have created a vast spectrum of work with such beauty and depth as Anjolie Ela Menon has done in the last forty years. All of her paintings evoke an extraordinary sensibility. Her earlier paintings were reflected by melancholy and moodiness which was deeply influenced by Romanesque art. Later on her paintings were influenced by the Byzantine art and medieval Christian art that focuses on subject matters such as brooding nudes priests and prophets. By the 70s her works began to acquire a metaphorical narrative quality but the myth in the paintings was of her own making which was a strange amalgamation of the east and west. The central characters often were crows dogs goats and lizards. Animals birds reptiles apocalyptic male figures and lightly dressed women inhabited in her paintings. These characters were distilled from her very individual sub-conscious and do not relate to the collective myth. Later on she shifted to a more literary and intellectual mode. She painted windows and then later on used actual window panels in her paintings called object trouves .
