He was the first to give a face to Hindu Gods and Goddesses by creating their realistic images.




His paintings based on stories from Indian mythology and classic literature created a pan Indian iconography which became the basis of an Indian identity.

He is acknowledged as the father of modern Indian art and the originator of what is called 'Calendar Art'.
