Artist Nandalal Bose
Nandalal Bose (1883 - 1966)
The paintings of Nandalal Bose are considered among
India's best modern paintings by many critics. Influenced by the Tagore
family (he ran the art department of Shantiniketan) and the murals of
Ajanta, his classic works include paintings of scenes from Indian
mythologies, women, and village life.
