Brief Description Kshitindranath Majumdar was an influential figure of the Bengal School of Art which flourished between 1905 and 1920. He restricted himself to Vaishnavite and literary themes, evolving a mannered style in which languid, elongated figures generally appear against simple backgrounds with trees and shrubs. In this painting, influences from the paintings at Ajanta and Far Eastern techniques are evident.
