“Couple with philosopher”- a painting by Jatin Das

A couple and aphilosopher

Jatin Das is a highly respected artist in India. There is a man and a woman and standing between them is a philosopher .Perhaps it is a husband and a wife ,each of them looking at the philosopher for an answer to a tricky question of life. Or may be,it is the philosopher between them who comes between them all the time preempting their asking any questions about life. The philosopher is looking at neither of them although the man is eagerly awaiting an answer. May be, he is in need of an answer more than the woman who is merely looking on.

The colours are pretty,three different colours used for three characters. The reddish tinge on the man shows his passionate nature while the woman is blue and placid .All the while the philosopher ,in the ochre robes of a wise man,is looking away as though he seems to know the answer but is unwilling to give it.
