Jamini Roy was one of the most iconic figures of modern Indian art in the mid-20th century. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, Roy, overwhelmed by folk nostalgia, rejected his bourgeois art-school-trained identity to create art reminiscent of folk forms providing a cultural root independent of the west.
