Sometimes it is important to look back specially if it is the near past. There is a long history of modernism in art, both in Europe and India. Modernism in Indian art began during the colonial rule and had its complex run talking various routes and signposts. Bikash Bhattacharjee was one of the top Indian modernist carrying the vestiges of late modernism. Like a true modernist he carried the ethos of modernism by way of observing and expressing the style of painting, Bikash never gave up representation of Indian situation, people and society as he saw.
