Poking fun at politics or a satirical take on socio-economic happenings, a diverse array of cartoons spanning nearly 150 years by masters of the art as well as famed modern artists from West Bengal is on display here.
Enthusiasts can take a peek at as many as 80 replicas of works by legends like Abanindranath Tagore, Sukumar Ray, Rebatibhushan Ghosh and contemporary cartoonists like Debashish Deb, Chandi Lahiri and Amal Chakraborty at the 'Bangla Cartoon: 1872 to 2014' running at the Maya Art Space gallery here.
"We have showcased works by as many as 35 classic artists and 17 living modern-era cartoonists from 1872 to 2014. The exhibits would be arranged in two parts - 'The Early' and 'The Contemporary'," Madhuchhanda Sen, owner of Maya Art Space, told IANS.
One look at the bouquet of the framed pictures culled from newspaper clippings, magazines and collections will give viewers an idea of the caricatures, sketches and variety of techniques and art forms used through the decades.
Curated by Debdutta Gupta, the event that began Aug 8 will go on till Aug 16 and includes documentary screenings and discussions by contemporary artists.
