Paritosh Sen (b. Dhaka) was one of the founding artists of the Calcutta Group. He pursued his diploma in Fine Arts from the Government College of Arts and Crafts in Chennai in 1940. In 1949 Sen traveled to Paris to further his studies at the Ecole de Beaux-Arts. His artistic style is characterised by strong lines and bold strokes revealing the influence of cubism and fauvism. Sen skillfully employs two-dimensional and structural planes creating an illusion of voluptuousness within his works. He frequently places the human figure at the core of his representations; offering glimpses into scenes from everyday urban life. Sen’s artworks vividly capture the essence of urban existence and the central role of human presence within it.
