Jamini Roy's earlier residence at 1/2B Ananda Kumar Chatterjee lane in North Kolkata was his home for sixteen years.

Jamini Roy Residence

This was the home visited by Rabindranath Tagore and patrons like Maie Casey (wife of the the Bengal governor) and where he found success. The family were residents here till December 1949 when they moved to their current residence in Ballygunge Place East.

Jamini Roy Residence Painting

Descendants of Ananda Kumar Chatterjee still reside in the same lane, with photographs of portraits done by Jamini Roy of her family (Tarek Nath and Bani Nath) as remembrances - the original artworks have been sold a few decades ago.
