About the Artist: Jamini Roy (11th April 1887- 24th April 1972).
He is best known for combining and bringing in the interconnectedness of both modern and traditional techniques and creating intricate paintings. He was one of the students who studied under Abanindranath Tagore at the age of 16. At first, he tried his way through traditional methods of art which were mainly traditional Bengali artworks. It was later on that he experimented with mixing both western and Indian styles together and this worked out very well for him.
Jamini Roy’s artworks have been displayed in museums all over the world. Among the most important museums that showcase his paintings, Victoria and Albert Museum in London are widely recognized by art lovers. One can find a host of his paintings there, thanks to public and private collections. In 1955, he became the first Indian painter to be honoured with Fellow of the Lalit Kala Akademi by Lalit Kala Akademi, Indian Government’s National Academy of Art. Fellow of the Lalit Kala Akademi is the highest honour conferred by the Academy in the field of fine arts. In the year 1976, his works were included among the ‘Nine Masters’ by the Archaeological Survey of India. The ‘Nine Masters’ are considered art treasures because of their artistic and aesthetic value. To celebrate Roy’s 130th birth anniversary, Google came up with a special Google Doodle on 11 April 2017.
