`Naturally, he brings the self-conscious individuality
of a modern artist into this very old medium. His canons
of art are, as they should be, of the contemporary mind
in India today. But his love of the body- of man, woman
or trees links his work with the great tradition of
Indian sculpture. There is no essential aesthetic conflict
between the art of India of the part and the demands
of modern art, with its emphasis on the individuals,
conscious concern with canons which have to be discovered
a new and with a frightful honesty or purity of purpose
with every single work. Prodosh Das Gupta`s work adds
to our genuine enjoyment of art, and, further, it helps
us to realise this truth.` - Bishnu Dey
