Loveliness All Round

Nandalal's ancestors came from Banupur, which is ten miles from Calcutta on the western bank of the river Hooghly. During his great grandfather Krishna Mohan's time the family was very rich and then its fortune declined.

Nandalal's father, Purnachandra Bose, was the manager of the Karagpur Tahsil of the Raja of Darbhanga. On 3rd December 1883 Nandalal Bose was born in Kharagpur, in Monghyr District of Bihar Province. His mother Kshetramani Devi died when he was eight years old. But her influence on him was strong.

Kharagpur was a small village. The beauty of nature in Kharagpur made a profound impression on the young mind of Nandalal. The river that divides the village, the blue mountain range to the south, and all around, the paddy fields that changed colors every season; river, lake, forest, birds and animals - with this background naturally Nandalal was attracted to art.
