Ramendranath Chakravorty was a pioneer of early modernism in Bengal. He received his artistic training at the Government School of Art in Calcutta and Kala Bhavan (Santiniketan). In 1937, he studied at the Slade School of Art in London where he honed his skills in academic portraiture. Under the guidance of mentors like Nandalal Bose
and Abanindranath Tagore; Chakravorty’s artistic journey took a fascinating turn as he developed an interest in etchings and explored wood-cuts and lino-cuts. His artistry reflected a unique blend of European academic tradition and an attraction to the observant style of Japanese art. This made him an important figure in the world of printmaking during his time.
