Meal Time at the Hospital and more art by Chittaprosad

Meal Time at the Hospital
10 x 14.5 inch (h x w)
Brush and ink on paper

Painted in Munshiganj, at a local famine relief centre or hospital, three male figures are shown to be sitting hunched over on the floor and eating their meagre meals. Poorly constructed beds and bamboo supports can be seen in the background. Of various ages, all three men show the symptoms of famishment. The artist noted elsewhere that these daily meals would consist of dal-bhaat (lentils and rice) and one vegetable curry, a little milk and barley water for the sick.
