Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Jamini Roy Paintings - A west Indian Artist

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 3:07 AM
Jamini Roy was one of the most significant and leading Indian painters of the 20th century. He was born in Bengal in 1887 into a middle-class family of a land-owner. He spent most of his life living and working in Calcutta (now Kolkata). His father, Ramataran Roy was a middle class man who resigned government service to pursue his interest in art. In 1903, at the age of sixteen, Jamini Roy came to Kolkata and studied at the Government School of Art. He was awarded the Padma Bhushan in 1955, and he died in 1972 in Kolkata.

His simplicity and naturalness are reflected through his work. For his paintings, Jamini Roy selected his themes from everyday rural life, religious themes like the Ramayana, Radha and Krishna, Jesus Christ etc. Apart from these, he also painted scenes from the lives of the aboriginal Santhals, such as Santhals engaged in drum-beating, Santhal mother and child, Dancing Santhals etc. Some of his paintings such as Krishna and Radha Dancing, Santhal Boy with Drum, Virgin And Child etc. are popular paintings. 

Jamini Roy developed a personal painting style inspired largely by traditional Indian folk and village arts. Through his paintings he gave expression to the scenes of everyday life of the people of rural Bengal. His paintings have been exhibited in the international exhibitions and can be found in many private and public collections such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.All paintings are courtesy of Art of Legend India.
