Born in 1917 in Lahore, Punjab, Dhanraj Bhagat graduated from Mayo College of Art. Dhanraj Bhagat and Ram Kinker Baij are considered to be the earliest of the modernists in Indian sculpture. Bhagat’s early wooden sculptures have liquid, stream-like forms with smooth, elongated lines. His sculptures have a flat frontal aspect to them which he used to encourage the viewer to look at it from only one angle much like some of Bracusi's earlier works.
