Paritosh Sen

About this author

Paritosh Sen was born on 26 September 1918, in Dhaka (then known as Dacca), the present-day capital of Bangladesh.  He was a leading Indian artist.

He pursued his artistic training at the Academie Andre Lhote, the Academie la Grande Chaumiere, the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and the Ecole des Louvre in Paris. Upon his return to India, he taught first in Bihar and then at Jadavpur University. He also taught art at Daly College in Indore during the late 1940s.

He was a founder member of the Calcutta Group, an art movement established in 1942 that did much to introduce modernism into Indian art.

In 1959/60, he published Zindabahar, a book of autobiographical sketches in which he memorialized the Dacca city of his childhood. He died in Kolkata.
