ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jamini Roy was born on 11 April 1887 in a small village of Beliatore in the Bankura district of West Bengal. 1903 At the age of 16, he studied at the Government College of Art & Craft, Calcutta under Abanindranath Tagore. 1908 he received a diploma in fine arts. Known as the first modernist guru of Indian art, he rediscovered the trappings of Western modernism in an Indian context and blended them with Indian folk art forms.
He mixed the minimal brush strokes of the Kalighat style with the elements of Bengali tribal art. Like Ramayana, Krishna, Yashoda, Krishna, Gopini, Sri Chaitanya, Radha-Krishna and Jesus Christ, he chose religious subjects like the joys and sorrows of daily life in rural Bengal, tribal art, Bengali folk painting, but he described them in detail. In addition to these, he depicts the life scenes of indigenous Santals, such as Santhal Mother and Child, Dance Santhals, etc.
Today, His Artworks are found in many private collections around the world, such as the Lalit Kala Akademi in Delhi, the National Gallery of Modern Art (New Delhi), the National Gallery of Modern Art (Mumbai), the Victoria Memorial Hall (Kolkata) and museums in Germany and the United States.
The pen of this versatile artist froze with his body on April 24, 1972. Euremia snatched away his colorful canvas, board, paper, paint, brush, palette and one of his unfinished paintings, The Last Supper. Artist Jamini Roy, who has just turned 85, left to draw the picture. Although he has a large painting 'Last Supper in the National Gallery of Modern Art in the capital.
Lots of nostalgia for him. But the aspects in which only he will survive as Jamini Roy, the symbolic meaning in which he will remain, Jamini Roy, the one in which he will shine as one of the stars in the artistic world, are all related to his image. But the rest of space? His works are in large museums and galleries in many countries of the world.
Jamini Roy died in Calcutta on 24 April 1972.
