Google Doodle, Google’s own artistic canvas which sees different alterations on a temporary basis, today celebrates the 130th birthday anniversary of Jamini Roy, India’s prolific artist.

Jamini Roy was arguably India’s first modernist artist who drew inspiration from the Indian culture and represented them through his art. Tutored in Bengal School of Art under the mentorship of Abanindranath Tagore, Roy showcased most of his paintings as portraiture and impressionism.

As the nationalism surge took place, he looked for a more ‘Indian’ form to express his art. "He sought inspiration from East Asian calligraphy, terracotta temple friezes, folk arts and crafts traditions. From calligraphy to animals, to Jesus Christ, his work encompassed many different subjects and motifs," the doodle mentions.

The doodle features his iconic works from different phases of his career - 'Portrait of a Lady', 'Three Pujarins', 'Christ', ‘the 'Krishna Leela', and the 'Mother and Child' series among others.
