Hailing from Benaras, Biswanath Mukerji left home to become an artist. From 1939-45, he studied at the School of Arts and Crafts, Lucknow, under Asit Haldar, Lalit Mohan Sen, Hiranmoy Roychaudhuri and Bireswar Sen. He spent his entire career experimenting with watercolour and its variants, never deviating from it to paint with oils or acrylic or any other medium. One of India’s eminent abstract artists, his works often possessed an ethereal quality, leading to them being characterised as mystical and sublime.
