Why this is a
Masterpiece

A portrait of a thirsty fat man drinking water. He is not dressed because of the scorching summer heat. A fine work of art.

History of the Object
Ba Nyan was one of the great names in modern painting in Myanmar. The Burma Art Club helped him go to the Royal College of Art in London in 1921. Later he moved to the Yellow Door Fine Arts School. He returned to Burma in 1925 full of enthusiasm about western oil painting techniques and began depicting the Burmese countryside in the style of conservative British landscape artists.[
