Prokash Karmakar

 Prokash Karmakar (1933 – 24 February 2014) was a prominent Indian  artist from Kolkata, west Bengal. His work is in the permanent collections of a number of museums and galleries throughout India, including the National Gallery of  Modern art, New Delhi and he is the recipient of numerous awards.  Karmakar is best known for his landscapes and nudes, which are generally painted in vibrant colors with bold lines and intricate textures. His paintings reflect his perception and interpretation of nature (both orderly and chaotic), life (both rural and urban), and form (from soft to sharp), without reference to religion.
