Product Description

“Kalighat patas” are a class of paintings on paper produced by ‘patuas’ in the neighbourhood of the famous Kali Temple in Calcutta in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Popular themes included Hindu deities, satirical portrayals of Englishmen and ‘babus’, historical events and incidents of daily life.
In recent times, one artist belonging to a family of patuas, young Bhaskar Chitrakar of Kalighat, is reviving this style. This quirky painting, done in powder pigments on hand-made paper, is the artist’s surreal portrayal of two favourites of this part of the world – music and fish!
