One of the early Indian modernists, Abani Sen remained
till the end an unswerving individualist, daring experimenter
and a dedicated teacher. The various inflections of
realism we find in Daumier, Czanne and Van Gogh, and
the techniques of modern art, were all internalized
and indigenized by him. His masterly handling of different
media shows ceaseless interaction between the indigenous
and the alien, the past and the present.
1948 Art Teacher, Raisina High School and Sarada Ukil
School of Art, New Delhi.
