Patricia Hilton - @Amardip Ghosh Thanks--I reloaded one image in higher resolution, after I had uploaded some others. Now I cannot figure out how to delete the first two low res images(?) On a second note, the copyright info appears in a bad spot on a couple of my images. I'm sure this is a boilerplate thing, but I recommend lowering this mark as it would be common to have important content in this particular spot. Thanks!
Amardip Ghosh - @Patricia Hilton Thank you too! Smallest side of image should be > 400 px. In terms of file size in bytes, an image file size should not be more than 50MB. However since higher resolution digital files allow larger print sizes, artists and photographers are advised to upload the highest resolution images they have. For good digital prints, smallest side of image should be > 1500 px.
Lisa Morshead - @Amardip Ghosh Thanks so much! This is such a great service for both professional and student artists. I'd also love to be more involved with AAC in any manner in which I can be helpful!
Born in 1939, Panchugopal Dutta was an important painter and sculptor from the Bengal School of Art. He received Commercial Art training from West Bengal, India in 1958. Following that, he received his Diploma in Fine Arts from the Indian College of Arts and Draftsmanship in 1966. A pupil of Ramananda Bandyopadhyay, Panchugopal Dutta is known for his "Bengali style" of painting. He became the principal instructor of fine arts department at the Ramakrishna Mission in Purulia, West Bengal, where he served for well over three decades. His classic works include scenes from folk life in India, gods and goddesses, mendicants, women and of various human conditions. His work is deeply inspired by the life and works of swami Vivekananda, Ramakrishna Paramhansa, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and the like. His works are displayed on museum walls along with the works of stalwarts like Abanindranath Tagore, Gaganendranath Tagore, Kshama Gupta, Nandalal Basu, Ashit Kumar Halder, Sunayani Devi, Chitraniva Choudhury and the like. His works are often characterized by their geometrical complexity, symmetry and symbolism. Although noted as one of the stalwarts, Panchugopal Dutta lived a self effacing life, staying out of the spotlight and attention. He passed away in January 2015.
