Kalighat Painting - Lady Musician (22" X 14")

SCK01TB

A beautiful and vibrant hand painted wall décor artifact, this lovely, rustic painting will always be a statement piece. The size includes a black mount all around the main painting. Kalighat painting evolved as a unique painting style in the rapidly urbanizing cityscape of 19th-century Kolkata. The artists who developed the Kalighat painting style were traditional scroll painters (patuas). In catering to the changing urban populace, the artists modified their linear narrative styles and adopted single pictures with one or two figures. These were essentially water color paintings executed on mill-made paper. The style of these paintings is characterized by their bold sweeping brush lines, bold colors and a simplification of forms. The paintings over a period of time developed as a distinct school of Indian Painting. From the depiction of Hindu gods, goddesses, and other mythological characters, the Kalighat paintings developed to reflect a variety of themes from daily urban life of that time.
