About the Artwork +

Uttam Chitrakar portrays a captivating masterpiece that pays homage to the divine mother, Maa Durga, draped in a resplendent red saree. At the centre of the canvas, Maa Durga stands as the embodiment of strength, protection, and empowerment. Draped in a striking red saree that billows like flames, she is a vision of both beauty and ferocity. Her ten arms are poised with a variety of weapons, each symbolising her supreme power to combat evil and protect the righteous. Mahishasura, the demon who could only be vanquished by a female, lies pinned beneath the divine feet of Maa Durga, his form twisted in defeat. Maa Durga's vahana, the lion, adds an element of majesty to the scene. As she rides on the back of the fierce yet loyal beast, it symbolises her authority and dominance over the forces of darkness. The masterpiece is a testament to the timeless narrative of good prevailing over evil, reminding viewers of the eternal power of the mother goddess to unleash her wrath when needed to restore balance and harmony.

    Kalighat


    The Kalighat paintings developed in the 19th century in the Bengal presidency. The travelling scroll painters or the patuas had been practising folk art of Pattachitra. The new manners and customs of the British settlers, the revivalist exercises of the Mughal and theatres as well as the use of Sanskrit on stage was absorbed by the rural artists who had migrated to Calcutta and developed it into a popular urban genre. The period of Kalighat paintings coincides with the age of mechanical reproduction in the form of woodcut, lithography, oleography and printing. These developments had caused mass consumption of imagery in the urban cities and Kalighat was a response to it. The Kalighat painters interacted with the colonial paintings and began the use of water colours, shaded figures, folio-sized mill made papers. They absorbed the role of the western theatre performances and the art schools which developed the unique stylistic features of the Kalighat paintings as we know them today. More here on our blog.
