CALL OF THE REAL
Contemporary Indian Artist From Bengal
This book features eleven contemporary artists from Bengal, as they each have their own unique and artistic ways of interpreting the life, spirit, and land of Bengal. The eleven artists evoke through symbol, myth, colours and lines, the rich and complex aspects of this amazing region. The eldest of these painters represented was born in 1918, the youngest in 1965; the prime span is the twentieth century and the style modern. This volume reaches out to a public that may never see these paintings and that may never have been to Bengal. The artists included are Paritosh Sen, Shyamal Dutta Ray, Sakti Burman, Ramananda Bandopadhyay, Suhas Roy, Lalu Prasad Shaw, Jogen Chowdhury, Sunil Das, Bikash Bhattacharjee, Shuvaprasanna and Paresh Maity.
