Binode Behari Mukherjee

While visiting National Gallery of Modern Art, I was riveted by the sunflowers created by Benode Bihari Mukherjee

He was a prominent artist of Shantiniketan, who despite being blind in one eye and weak sighted in another, became famous as a painter and was appointed as a Curator for Nepal National Museum.

Later, he lost his eyesight completely and yet continued to sketch and make murals for Shantiniketan. His art speaks for itself.

Satyajit Ray made a famous documentary by the name of Inner Eye, showcasing his talent…

An epitome of will power and talent is Benode Bihari Mukherjee…
