The name “kalighat pata” is applied to a class of paintings and drawings on paper produced by a group of artists called ‘patuas’ in the neighbourhood of the famous Kali Temple at Kalighat in Calcutta in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In recent times, Bhaskar Chitrakar of Kalighat, is reviving this style. Inspired by his grandfather, he has decided to create paintings in the same tradition. The artist is very young but the style is old. This work is part of his “Babu-Bibi” series, where the artist creates humorous semi-satirical painting of Bengali babus during the days of the Raj. In the style of traditional religious and mythological art, the size and placement of the figures determines their relative importance. It is therefore significant that the husband is shown as a smaller figure at the feet of his wife!
