The celebrated painter Jamini Roy was known for using cheap indigenous pigments so that his art could reach the people of all sections of society, including rich and poor. Its great to know that such a great artist had such noble thoughts back then. Thank you Indianetzone for giving this important information through the article.

Jamini Roy had realized that he must focus on the intrinsic culture of our country rather following western influences. So he took inspirations from village and folk life.
