CATALOGUE NOTES
Pran Krishna Pal was an artist and a quintessential member of the Calcutta Group which was formed in the aftermath of the Bengal Famine in 1943. Pal, along with members of the Calcutta Group resisted the romanticism and lyricism prevalent in the work of Bengali artists at that time and painted images evoking anguish and trauma to reflect the crisis of urban society. His early works demonstrate the influence of Mughal and Rajasthani style of painting.
