Jahar Dasgupta is a remarkable name in the world of creative art in modern Bengal. Born in 1942 in steel town of Jamshedpur, Bihar, he has his early training in arts and painting in Shantiniketan under such legendary masters like Ramkinkar Baiz and Benode Behari Mukherjee. In 1964 he got his diploma in painting and within a small interlude of three years he organised his own first one man show at Birla Academy, Calcutta. That was the golden beginning and he went on climbing the peaks and made his presence felt in the circle of artists and art-lovers allover the country.Jahar’s drawings and paintings are straight, firm, deep-rooted and massive in meaningful message. He is a rebel in his own world challenging hitherto imposed barriers and bondage of traditional ideas and contemporary groupisms.A lonely wanderer and pathfinder he treads alone with his passionate zeal and enviable urge and concern for social justice. Pain, passion and protest of the time, dream and despair of our problem-riddled age have their full echo in his magnificent strokes of brush with unfamiliar mingling of colours. That way he reaches straight into the hearts of those who can read words in colours and sketches.Man is an integral part of the living universe and nature is closest to him. Jahar in some of his recent works, recaptures this undenying relationship with the soft use of timid yet bright and transparent colour. The lost glory of that traditional bond is revived and retold with such superb mastery that the quietude of the green enters into our soul.

 Early life and education

Jahar born in the Steel City of Jamshedpur. His father late Mr. Narendranath Dasgupta was the director of CFRI. In the infant stage he used to draw trees and animals on the floor with pieces of Conté. At the age of six he draws a face of Stalin and became popular in his school. His elder Sister in Law who noticed the talent and gifted an imported box of colours to Jahar. He is also the main person to insist Jahar's father to enroll his name in Santiniketan.

The home of Jahar was actually near a river. The other side of the river was a Tribal village. Many from the village would come to work in the Tata Steel factories. After sunset, the fire and smoke from the chimneys, the turbulent river and the little village on the other side of the river are visually etched in his memory since childhood. The duality of this scenario – industry and advancement on this side and the village on the other side where time stood still, did not enter in his consciousness then. At the age of eight, his family left the steel city and went to live in the coalfields of Dhanbad district, in a place called Digwari.

His Youth

In the year 1959, he went to Kala Bhavan in Santiniketan. Shantiniketan was like an oasis with abundant greenery and an ambiance of culture. The influences of changing faces of nature have had a reflection in Jahar's paintings.


Jahar directly got into touch with legendary person like Nandalal Bose. At that time he got teachers in Kala Bhavan like Benode Behari Mukherjee and Ram Kinker Baij. He also got some senior friends like A. Ramachandran and Dharmanarayan Dasgupta in Kala Bhavan.
