CATALOGUE NOTES
Chittaprosad Bhattacharya was an artist, avid storyteller, and poet. His body of works document human suffering, the labouring poor, and the marginalised. Chittaprosad's artistic oeuvre is a revolution against the tyranny of domination and social injustice at that time. In 1943 - 44, Bhattacharya blatantly depicted the grim realities of the Bengal Famine through profuse sketches in stark black and white, copies of which were seized and destroyed by the British.
