PROSANTO ROY

Prosanto Roy was a student at Kala Bhavana in the late 1920s and then he also taught there, along with Ramkinker Baij and others. Santiniketan was surrounded by art in all forms. The old library had a verandah where Nandalal Bose had painted frescos along with his students, including Prosanto Roy and Dhiren krishna Debbarman. The hostel’s visiting room walls had frescoes painted on the walls by Nandalal Bose’s daughters, Gouri and Yamuna, and Prosanto Roy’s wife Geeta. The frescoes are still there, restored recently. Prasanta Roy was very much part of the traditional Bengal School of Art. His landscapes were masterpieces of great detail and Atmosphere. (Source: Visva Bharati Quarterly Vol III July-Sep 1954)
