Among the more gifted of artist Abanindranath Tagore’s students, Bireswar Sen started painting in the tradition and style of his teacher and drew his inspiration from the Japanese masters Yokoyama Taikan and Kampo Arai. A meeting in 1932 with Russian painter and philosopher Nicholas Roerich was a turning point in Sen’s life, when he began to paint Himalayan landscapes in the miniature format, of which Parvati is a fine example, marking a new era in Indian painting.
