Modernism in Bengal—Ramkinkar Baij, DAG New York
Online lecture, June 22, 2022, 6:30pm EDT

DAG will host an online talk on Ramkinkar Baij by artist, writer, and educator Sharmistha Ray. This lecture contextualizes the pioneering artist and his legacy in Indian art.

Drawn from life, Ramkinkar Baij's (1906-1980) figures breathed a bold realism, an earthy strength and spontaneity seen in his sculptures, drawings, and paintings. A similar spontaneity of action is visible in his transparent watercolors and drawings, in particular in his series of nudes. The first truly "modern" Indian sculptor, his works are monumental, and yet possess an inner movement.
