Sailoz Mookherjea was a visionary artist who played a pivotal role in shaping modern Indian art in the backdrop of India’s pursuit of independence in the early 1940s. Mookherjea began his artistic journey at the Government College of Art and Craft in Calcutta during the late 1920s. Sailoz Mookherjea’s artistic training provided him exposure to the diverse artistic possibilities of the East and the West. Mookherjea emerged as a prominent artist of his time known for his exploration of oil painting as a medium of artistic expression. His art captured rural life and landscapes while embracing modern idioms, hence bridging the gap between traditional representation and the new sensibility of Indian modernism. Sailoz Mookherjea’s paintings portraying landscapes and everyday life have become timeless aesthetic references for understanding the indigenous element of modernism in Indian art. NON - EXPORTABLE
