Ramkinkar Baij

Ramkinkar Baij was born in 1910 in Bankura, West Bengal. He received his diploma from Kala Bhavan, Santi Niketan and later became Head of the Sculpture Department there. Although he is known for his expressionistic sculpture, he was a talented painter whose achievements in painting have not been sufficiently recognized. Like his sculpture, his paintings are Spontaneous and bold. His works have been included in several exhibitions such as the Asian Art Exhibition, Tokyo (1979), Man and Nature: Reflections of Six Artists, Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage and National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi (1995). A retrospective of his work was held at the National Gallery of Modern Art (1990).
