View Artist Portfoio

Panchugopal Dutta (b. 2 August 1939, Mymensingh, Bangladesh, d. 6 January 2015, Purulia, India) is an important painter and sculptor from the Bengal School of Art. He received Commercial Art training from Fulia Polytechnic (Nadia, West Bengal, India) in 1958. Following that, he received his Diploma in Fine Arts from the Indian College of Arts and Draftsmanship in 1966. A pupil of Ramananda Bandyopadhyay, Panchugopal Dutta is known for his \"Bengali style\" of painting. He became the principal instructor of fine arts department at the Ramakrishna Mission Vidyapith located in Purulia, West Bengal, India where he served for well over three decades. His classic works include scenes from folk life in India, gods and goddesses, mendicants, women and of various human conditions. His work is deeply inspired by the life and works of swami vivekananda, ramakrishna paramhansa, chaitanya mahaprabhu and the like. His works are displayed on museum walls along with the works of stalwarts like Abanindranath Tagore, Gaganendranath Tagore, Kshama Gupta, Nandalal Basu, Ashit Kumar Halder, Sunayani Devi, Chitraniva Choudhury and the like. His works are often characterized by their geometrical complexity, symmetry and symbolism. Panchugopal Dutta has held several one man solo exhibitions at the Academy of Fine Arts, Calcutta in the years 1974, 1976, 1978 and 1991. Although noted as one of the stalwarts, Panchugopal Dutta has lived a self effacing life, staying out of the spotlight and attention. In 2009, when funds were required for his hospitalization, a vast collection of his paintings spanning four decades was discovered in his residence which were never sold or commercialized. At the initiative of some of his ex-students, this collection was for the first time cataloged and made available for people to see and collect.
