Calcutta, CIMA Gallery, Jogen Oils and Drawings 1969 - 1996, 20 February - 10 March 1996, p. 37, illustrated.
In 1987 Jogen Chowdhury left Delhi and moved to Santiniketan. The move seems to mark a change in the style of his work. His line becomes bold and free and his canvases in particular show a simplification of composition. The brilliant colors associated with the rural folk art traditions of Bengal begin to appear in his work, and two-dimensional linear forms set into bold planes of background color replace his earlier sculpted forms.
