NANDALAL BOSE

Sister Nivedita

At this time he was greatly encouraged by Sister Nivedita. She came with Jagadishchandra Bose to see Nandalal's paintings. She became a great friend of the artist.

Nandalal Bose was excellent not only with his brush but also with his pen. When Sister Nivedita died, his words competed with his colors: "There was a rare kindness in her face. There was the radiance of purity and strength. Any one who saw that face once could never forget it.

All that I can say about her encouragement to me will be too little. In her death I have lost my guardian angel. I was introduced to Ramakrishna and Vivekananda by her."

Nandalal Bose was not only a great painter; he played a leading role in the renaissance of art. He was one of our renaissance figures along with Asit Kumar Halder,Surendranath Ganguli, Samarendra Gupta, Kshitindranath Majumdar, Surendranath Kar, K.

Venkatappa, Hakim Moh ammed Khan, Shailendranath Dey and Durga Simha. Abanindranath Tagore was the source of inspiration to all these.
