Hemendranath Mazumdar was a painter of exceptional talent. Although he was praised for his fine treatment of pastels, watercolors and chalks, his real skill lay in the way he handled the oil medium.Women of his native  Bengal, most bathing or draped in wet saris are considered Mazumdar`s classical trademark. A renowned and thriving painter of the European academic style in the Kolkata of 1920s, Hemendranath was a close associate of Abanindranath Tagore but was never won over by the ideals of the Neo-Bengal School that the Tagores founded.

Hemendranath Mazumdar was a painter of exceptional talent. Although he was praised for his fine treatment of pastels, watercolors and chalks, his real skill lay in the way he handled the oil medium.Women of his native  Bengal, most bathing or draped in wet saris are considered Mazumdar`s classical trademark. A renowned and thriving painter of the European academic style in the Kolkata of 1920s, Hemendranath was a close associate of Abanindranath Tagore but was never won over by the ideals of the Neo-Bengal School that the Tagores founded.

A notable artist of the rebel Jubilee Art School, (training its students in British academic style, breaking away from Abanindranath’s Orientalist emphasis), Hemendranath Majumdar enjoyed great artistic success.

 

 

Painting in European academic realist language, he was one of the co-founders of the Indian Academy of Fine Arts in 1919. Early in his career, he was known for his portraits of Indian royalty and paintings of women, whom he painted in diaphanous clothes. After Ravi Varma, he became the most sought-after artist for oil portraits.

 

 

His large oils of partially clothed or nude women, with their air of voyeuristic eroticism attracted the Maharajas of Jaipur, Bikaner, Kashmir, Patiala and other princely states as clients who threw open their palaces to him. Most commonly a single woman is seen in these works in wet drapery and idealised romantic settings, emphasizing their sensuous appeal.
