Hiranmoy Roychaudhuri learnt sculpture from E. B. Havell at the Calcutta School of Art in 1905 and left for England in 1910 to train in sculpture at the Royal College of Art. Adopting and promoting European techniques and modes in sculpture, Roychaudhuri was mentor to many future eminent sculptors, including D. P. Roy Chowdhury, Prodosh Das Gupta, Sudhir Ranjan Khastgir, among others. Rendering works in academic style, Roychaudhuri’s triumph as an artist was in infusing his own style and finesse, evident in this Untitled (Portrait of Artist’s Wife) terracotta work.
