CATALOGUE NOTES
NATIONAL ART TREASURE - NON EXPORTABLE ITEM
After graduating from the Government Art School Kolkata in 1916, Jamini Roy received regular commissions to make landscapes and portraits. Most of his paintings were in the western academic styles, like portraiture and impressionism. It was only later when he changed from this profitable style to a more native style of making art.
