Lot Essay

Roma Mukerji trained under the artist Kshitindranath Mazumdar and her wash technique and choice of mythological and religious subjects are clearly inspired by his work. During the 1950's she produced a series of works relating to the life of Gautama Buddha, for which the current work won a gold medal at the Calcutta Annual Art Exhibition.
