Besides the Tagore family, which had made tremendous effort in bringing forth a modern idiom in Indian printmaking, it is Mukul Dey—India’s first trained creative printmaker with training stints abroad—who made ceaseless efforts in printmaking as we know it today. Girls Dancing is a fine example of the artist’s oeuvre, the level of expertise that he achieves in highlighting the details of the three figures, their ornaments, their facial expressions, their features, their garments, and much else despite the complexities posed by the medium.
