Footnotes:

Sailoz Mookherjea, a distinguished Indian artist, was born in 1906 in Bengal. A
luminary in the realm of modern Indian art, Mookherjea played a pivotal role in the
development of the Calcutta Group, a significant artistic collective that emerged in the
1940s. His early years were marked by formal training at the Government School of Art in
Calcutta, where he imbibed the academic rigors of artistic expression.Mookherjea's artistic
journey evolved significantly during his stay in Paris in the 1930s, where he encountered
European modernist movements and assimilated their influences into his own distinctive
style. A painter of profound subtlety, he adeptly merged the essence of Indian art with
Western modernist techniques. Mookherjea's oeuvre often reflects a poetic exploration of
nature, folklore, and mythology, characterized by delicate brushwork and a harmonious use
of colour.The artist's works were characterized by a keen sense of spirituality, with themes
often drawn from Indian mythology and rural life. His landscapes and figurative
compositions bear a tranquil yet evocative quality, showcasing a masterful command over
form and content. Sailoz Mookherjea's artistic contributions have left an enduring impact on
the trajectory of Indian modern art, earning him recognition and acclaim. His legacy lives on
through his compelling body of work, embodying a synthesis of cultural traditions and

modern artistic expressions. Mookherjea's artistic journey concluded in 1960, but his
influence continues to resonate in the rich tapestry of India's artistic heritage.
