During Pongal and other festivals, this decorative art work is done on the floor in front of the house and on the space before the alter of the deity. Kolam, like other floor decorative arts of India, is a symbol of fortune. Designs and motifs are tradional in nature and these are both floral and geometrical forms. The floor should be wet or moist by sprinkling water on it. The dry coarse ground rice flour is held between the thumb and forefingers. The hands keep on moving while the rice powder is rubbed to release on the floor along the predetermined design. It is very important to continue the drawing as long as possible without any pause.

Ans.:- The Night Watch

Rembrandt was a Dutch painter. He was a realist. In most of his paintings, we see the mysteries in the play of light and shade. This tends to highlight the ‘soul’ of the painting. Rembrandt painted ‘Night Watch’ between 1640-1642. For a long time the painting was kept coated with a dark varnish which gave the incorrect impression that the painting depicted a night scene but when the varnish was removed in 1940 it was discovered to represent broad day light.

This painting illustrates the young captain giving order to his lieutenant to march his Company civilians. The painting shows effective use of light and shadows. The captain is dressed in black with a red sash. The lieutenant and a small girl are shown wearing yellow dress which also symbolizes the colour of victory. There is also a white dead chicken hanging from the girl’s belt shown to represent defeated enemy. In the background stands a drummer to energize the march. The painting shows the mastery to depict the traditional-military portraits with expression.

(a) What is Mural painting? Explain the Mural painted on the wall of Hindi Bhavan in Fresco Buono technique. (See Lesson-9)


Title - Mediaeval Saints

Artist - Benode Behari Mukherjee (1904-1980)

Period  - 1947

Collection - Mural on the wall of Hindi Bhavan, Visva Bharati. Santiniketan.

Medium - Fresco Buono

Benode Behari Mukherjee was a student of Nandalal Bose, the famous Bengal School painter. Benode Behari loved nature and its beauty and he based his paintings on that. He learnt the art of landscaping from Japan. He used very simple and rational lines like the Japanese artists. These lines have quality of Calligraphy. Benode Behari suffered from weak eyesight from his childhood and became totally blind in the later part of his life. Neither his poor eyesight in young age and blindness in later age could stop his creative urge.

All through his life he experimented with different mediums. In spite of his blindness, he created a huge mural at Kala Bhavan, Santiniketan.

“The Mediaeval Saints” is one of the murals which he painted on the wall of Hindi Bhavan in “Fresco Buono” technique. It is a method of wall painting in which powdered pigments colours are mixed in water and are applied to wet freshly laid lime plaster ground. In this method the colour becomes the part of the wall so that the colours last long.

“Mediaeval Saints” is a wall painting (Mural) depicting the Saints of different religions of India. The composition is well planned to suit the size and shape of the walls. The huge and elongated forms of the human figures arranged with a river like flowing movement in perfect harmony and rhythm. The monument like quality of these figures remind us of Sculptures on the Grothic Church wall. The emphatic verticality of the composition is nicely balanced by smaller figures in horizontal continuity. The largeness of the figures express their spiritual greatness. The smaller figures represent the common people engaged in different activities of everyday life

Most of his life, he travelled tirelessly seeking new settings and effects of nature to paint. He is widely regarded for his enchanting flower - landscape, river with boats, seascape and rock coast. He endlessly painted the wonderful water-garden which gave him his final great public recognition. In the series of “Water Lilies" in 1899-1900, the ‘Japanese Bridge’ across the pond acted as the central features of the paintings. In almost all these paintings the sky was barely absent but he freely painted its brilliant reflections in many vibrant colours to add extraordinary depth. The fresh blossomed Lilies of various sizes add to the beauty of the painting

(b) Write four Pioneers of Contemporary Indian Art and their contribution of the area of Art. (See Lesson-9)

Ans: After the decline of Mughal empire and the end of classical and medieval art of India. Contemporary art began with the British rule in India. Raja Ravi Varma, Abanindranath Tagore, Amrita Shergil, Rabindra Nath Tagore, and Jamini Roy, were the pioneers of contemporary Indian Art. These young artists were more exposed to the western art movements. German Expressionism, Cubism, Fauvism, Dadaism and Surrealism left great influence on these Indian painters, but at the same time, their struggle to retain Indian identity continued. A combination of western technique and Indian spiritualism became the essence of Indian art at this stage. Along with the western methods and materials, they also tried to use the far eastern methods of painting. Lot of experiments were done with print making (Woodcut, Lithograph, Etching etc.). Pradosh Das Gupta, Prankrishna Pal, Nirode Mazumder, Paritosh Sen and others of Calcutta group held the first show in 1943 and the progressive Artists group of Bombay exhibited the paintings of F.N. Souza, Raza, M.F. Hussain, K.H. Ara and others in 1947. While some artists were experimenting with western style, others like Benode Behari Mukherjee, Ramkinkar Vaij, Sailoz Mukherjee, showed inclination towards Japanese art and Folk Art. Two of Bengal School artists, Devi Prosad Roy Chowdhury and Saroda Ukil played fundamental roles in introducing modern art movement in the Northern and Southern parts of India. K.C.S. Panikar and Srinivasalu, students of D.P. Roy choudhury, made their mark in contemporary Art while Saroda Ukil established an Art School in Delhi.
