new artistic canon was also epitomized by Nandalal
Bose (1882-1966), another artist of the Bengal
School. He was the first Indian artist to react meaningfully
to the various linguistic facets of the Indian Art tradition.
He had a great breadth of sensibility and technical
range. He made special efforts to establish contact
between Indian artisans and artists. He pioneered experiments
in modern Indian sculpture, fresco and graphics.
