About

Indra Dugar - Untitled - 8 x 10.5 inches (unframed size) & 16 x 18.5 inches ( framed size ) This is a two sided works, Recto & Verso. Set of 5 art works. Ink on Paper. Inclusive of shipment in framed form. Style : Dugar was known for his paintings of rustic scenes en plein air, painted in a non-academic style, yet retaining colour harmony to reflect the tranquillity of his subject matter. He learnt how to structure his landscapes from Nirode Mazumdar and Rathin Moitra, and from his father, he inherited the tradition of painting on silk. Watercolour and tempera were his preferred media. Dugar's earlier works leaned heavily on his observations, but he gradually began paring down detail. Dugar soon outgrew the Bengal School mannerisms, invariably visiting places to paint ‘on the spot’ observed views of nature and life. While progressively reducing the naturalistic details in his paintings, Indra Dugar instinctively retained colour harmony for expressing serenity in nature. About the Artist & his works : Born : Indra Dugar ( 1918 - 1989 ) was born in Jiagunj, West Bengal. Education : He was the son of Hira Chand Dugar, a major painter of the early modern period of Indian Art. Indra Dugar, unlike his illustrious father Hirachand Dugar, did not have any formal education in art and during his schooling in Santiniketan he somewhat unconsciously absorbed the artistic ambience of Kala Bhavana and the Neo-Bengal School. Eventually, he outgrew the Bengal School and developed a highly individualistic style of painting. The technique and art practices he acquired from his father without going through any academic routine. Indra Dugar considered Santiniketan his alma-mater, and drew his inspiration from the art of Nandalal Bose. Art Career : Perhaps the absence of academic programming gave Dugar’s art a rare individuality that distinguished him from other artists of Kala Bhavana. Dugar was a versatile artist. He created decorative motifs for the annual sessions of the Congress at Ramgarh, Jaipur and Amritsar, which went beyond his chosen theme of Indian landscapes. He was an art critic with the Bengali publications Desh and Anand Bazar Patrika, and tried his hand at illustrating children's books.Dugar has shown his art as part of several prestigious exhibitions in India and abroad, including an exhibition sponsored by the UNESCO in Paris, in 1946. His art is housed in private and public collections including the Academy of Fine Arts, Indian Museum and Raj Bhavan in Kolkata, and the Japanese Art Association in Tokyo. In 1987, Dugar donated paintings for the Amar Mahal Museum in Jammu. Award : A member of the Academy of Fine Arts in Kolkata and of the All India Fine Arts and Crafts Society in New Delhi. Dugar soon outgrew the Bengal School mannerisms, invariably visiting places to paint ‘on the spot’ observed views of nature and life. While progressively reducing the naturalistic details in his paintings, Indra Dugar instinctively retained colour harmony for expressing serenity in nature.
