Nandalal Bose, 

Portrait of Ramesh Charan Basu Majumdar (Fascimile)

11 November 1955

Collection: Gitasree Dutta and Prabir Dutta

This sketch, currently in the possession of Geetasree and Prabir Dutta, was drawn by Nandalal Bose in 1955. Malini Bhattacharya, who has gifted the collection to JBMRC, recalls that her father had taken her to Mastermoshai’s house. Seated in the most unassuming manner imaginable, Nandalal had sketched and gifted this work to the young girl, telling her that their grandfather was not just a teacher but also a fine artist.
