Artstor and the Francis Newton Souza Estate have released approximately 900 images of the celebrated Indian painter’s artwork in the Artstor Digital Library.

Born in Saligoa, Goa, India in 1924, Francis Newton Souza became the first of India’s post-Independence modern painters to achieve high recognition in the West. His works can be found in major museum collections around the world, including Tate Britain and Tate Modern, the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Birmingham Museum of Art, the Wakefield Art Gallery, the Haifa Museum in Israel, the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas, Texas, the National Gallery of Modern Art in India, the National Gallery of Victoria in Australia, and the Glenbarra Museum in Japan. According to Indian art historian Yashodhara Dalmia, “At the heart of Souza’s creativity was the belief that society’s destructive aspects shouldn’t be suppressed, they should be aired and confronted.”
