Jamini Roy was born in 1887 into a middle-class family of land-owners at a small village called Chhandar in the District of Bankura in Bengal .

When he was sixteen he was sent to study at the Government School of Art in Calcutta. He was taught to paint in the prevailing academic tradition drawing Classical nudes and painting in oils and in 1908 he received his Diploma in Fine Art.

However, he soon realised that he needed to draw inspiration, not from Western tradition (showing 500 of 7345 characters).
