About the Artwork +

Refined artist Bapi Chitrakar portrays a serene and divine moment as Radha and Krishna, the eternal lovers of Hindu mythology, sit beneath the shade of a sacred tree. The scene is imbued with a sense of spiritual tranquilly and enchantment. Radha and Krishna, with their radiant and divine presence, share an intimate connection under the tree. Their love is the epitome of devotion and the spiritual union of the individual soul with the divine. The tree represents the sacred canopy under which their love blossoms, and it offers shade and shelter, symbolising divine protection and nurturing. A cow, known as Kamadhenu, stands by their side, representing abundance and the fulfilment of desires. A peacock, with its vibrant plumage, adds to the ethereal atmosphere. Chitrakar's Kalighat art beautifully encapsulates the essence of Radha and Krishna's divine love and the rich symbolism surrounding them.

Bapi Chitrakar blue-tick

Bapi Chitrakar, a seasoned artist since childhood, hails from a lineage deeply rooted in artistry. Embracing Islamic faith, Patua artists like Bapi Chitrakar exemplify a distinct, inclusive artistic tradition. They breathe life into narratives from Hindu Mythology, local folklore, Sufi wisdom, and contemporary themes through the mesmerizing fusion of paintings and songs. While tracing the exact origins of Patua tradition poses a challenge, some believe its oral form dates back to the 10th or 11th century CE, with tangible scrolls emerging in the 18th century CE.

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.
