About

Rare Collectible by Bengal School Artist Artist : Dipen Bose Medium : Watercolours on paper Size : 7.5 x 5 inches Paintings on both sides of the paper. Extraordinary and Unique. Here the master artist shows very subtly the command he has over the brush. The dramatic effect that Monotone watercolours created, to play and tantalise all of our senses. Effortlessly executed, one cannot miss the expertise and uniqueness in the works. Even the less dense watercolours, speaks to its viewers. Its never been easier to connect with watercolours and its essence. Bengal Master Artist Dipen Bose (1921-1964)  Born in Calcutta, West Bengal. Education : Self-taught artist with no academic training in art. 1942 Completed Graduation, Calcutta. Grandfather, Nagendra Bose inspired him to start painting. Learnt the technique of oil painting from artist Debi Prasad Roychowdhury. 1947 Started to paint after giving up his job at Central Excise Service, Calcutta. His association with the Indian Institute of Art and Industry and Indian Society of Oriental Art played a vital role in his life. He was close to Indra Dugar. Associated with Art in Industry and Rachana till 1952. These associations inspired him towards traditional Indian Art, French Impressionism and Chinese Art. 1953 His painting was presented to the President, Federal Republic of Germany by Govt. of India. Dipen Bose Wrote articles on art in newspapers and journals. Style : For inspiration and evolving a personal style, Dipen looked at part of the history of art that seemed useful- Jain and Kangra painting, to Far Eastern art and even to Impressionism. This eclectic method finally resulted in a style akin to the Bengal School. During the mid 1940s, when Euro-centric concepts of Modernism were gaining momentum in India, Dipen as a loner ventured into a rather forgotten zone- the world of Indian mythology. During the early years of the twentieth century, the nationalistic movements demanded History Painting to conjure up a romantic vision of the past. During the heydays of colonialism, the need was more emotional than real. With time, the trend of History Painting waned. It was exactly at that time when Zainul Abedin, Chittaprosad, Rathin Maitra, Prodosh Dasgupta were drawing on the reality of human sufferings around them that Dipen quietly stood apart and painted from imagination, while Zainul painted from life.
