Night is Still Young - also by Sengupta, is a 2015 work that draws reference from an early 16th century painting titled - “A Grotesque Old Woman”, by Flemish artist Quentin Matsys. Sengupta reworks this satirical portrait of a woman with wrinkled skin and withered breasts, in her trademark Indian miniature style.  In doing so, she highlights the representation of women in miniature paintings, by contrasting it with a western work from a similar vintage.
