Remembering Jamini Roy on his 130th birth anniversary. One of the most significant early artists in India, Roy created his own indigenous visual language inspired by the Kalighat Paintings, Folk Art and the friezes of the terracotta temples of Bengal, he introduced simplified forms, bold lines, primary colours, rhthym and two dimensionality in a precise form. He picked as his subject Santhal musicians and dancers, mother-and-child themes, and familiar christian scenes, as well as popular imagery such as cat with a fish or a lobster in its mouth. Honoured with the Padma Bhushan in 1955, Jamini Roy's works are regarded National Art Treasures.
