Madras Art Movement placed a high value on the calligraphic quality of the drawn line. The line defined the surface and the volume, and the artists of the Madras Movement exploited the line's expressivity to convey ideas and emotions. Nandagopal's few drawings presented here in the image gallery reveal Nandagopal's strong allegiance to the Madras Art Movement and his ability to reduce the line to its bare minimum.
