Event Documenting Art From Bengal

Delhi Art Gallery is back with its second show, a seminal exhibition titled Art of Bengal

As one of the largest repositories of Bengal art of   the past two centuries, the Delhi Art Gallery presents its second exhibition, titled Art of Bengal. Curated by Kishore Singh, the exhibition features over two hundred works and is perhaps one of the largest exhibits of the art from Bengal held under one roof in the recent past. It features some early Bengal oils and several similarly themed works by academic school trained individual artists such as B. P. Banerjee. They lead to the work of salon and ‘gentleman-artists,’ produced by the newly-emergent art schools and institutions in Calcutta in late 19th-early 20th century, such as J. P. Gangooly. The school known as Bengal School with its dreamy, romantic imagery is represented in the works of Abanindranath Tagore, Nandalal Bose, Asit Haldar, Kshitindranath Majumdar and D. P. Roy Chowdhury. More modern artists such as Somnath Hore, Prodosh Das Gupta, Chittaprosad, Rabin Mondal, Bikash Bhattacharjee, Jogen Chowdhury, Nikhil Biswas and Bijan Choudhary also find a spot in this comprehensive exhibition.
