A Santhal Couple - Framed Prints
Jamini Roy is an Indian painter, honored with the State award of Padma Bhushan. Roy's rejection of the then modern style of painting and his foray into the realm of Bengali folk paintings marked a new beginning in the history of Indian modern art.
Jamini Rai captured the qualities that are a part of the native folk painting and recombined them with those of his own. He fused the minimal brush strokes of the Kalighat style with elements of tribal art from Bengal.View Artist Collection
