CATALOGUE NOTESProsanto Roy was a Bengal School artist who initially studied art under a European teacher. He was closely connected to the Tagores- groomed first by Rabindranath Tagore and then Abanindranath. His visual narrative comprised fairytales and myth with kaleidoscopic elements instilling a mysterious and mystic quality in his images. This work displays his penchant for the technique of delicate washes and was created while he was teaching at Santiniketan.
