Postcard to Ramesh Charan Basu Majumdar from Bagh

6 June 1921

Collection: JBMRC

A team of Santiniketan artists had travelled to Bagh in 1921 to copy the murals.

"It has been nine to ten days that we have come here [to Bagh], whatever we are being able to see [of the cave paintings], we are tracing them all. From tomorrow, we will begin the work with colour...Will send you some of these pictures later. Very beautiful – certainly from the same period as Ajanta."
