Chittaprosad was a self-taught artist and illustrator born in Bengal. Well known for his print works; he preferred to use linocuts and woodcuts. The prints were meant to be easily and cheaply created for the masses to be widely disseminated amongst the local populace. Chittaprosad witnessed the Bengal Famine in 1943 and saw the atrocities of a man-made famine firsthand. His works are a protest against colonialism and economic exploitation. Chittaprosad’s artistic oeuvre is a revolution against the tyranny of domination and social injustice at that time. This vibrant pastel on paper depicts a flower vase, being one of his rarer decorative works.
