Standing Figure Under A Kadam Tree, 1937
20.5 x 23.5 x 1 inch (h x w x d)
tempera on paper

Nandalal Bose prepared 85 paintings for the 1938 Haripura Congress, spending days in the villages around the area sketching scenes from local life. He wanted the people of the area to see themselves reflected in the paintings. In recognition of Gandhi’s emphasis on self-reliance, he used only local materials to prepare the paints and paper. The process of creating the pavilion was a collaborative effort with his students and together they created almost 400 posters and insets. He also framed in the images in Mughal style arches, as a response to the mounting communal tensions at the time.
