Jamini Roy was a major figure in 20th-century Indian art
history. One of her great works, The Three Pujarins, or Three
Priestesses, is a tempera on paper masterpiece. Inspired by
Bengal's folk art tradition, Roy experimented with vibrant
colors and developed his own unique painting style, resulting in
artwork that was a visual feast. He painted sensually with firm
angular lines using the gouache technique. The painting depicts
three women worshiping and has been painted with thick,
black contour lines.

Bharat Mata, one of Abanindranath Tagore's most famous
paintings, depicts a saffron-clad woman dressed as a sadhvi,
holding a book, sheaves of paddy, a piece of white cloth, and a
garland in her four hands. The painting became iconic as a
result of its emotional and historical significance. The painting
had such an impact that Bharatmata became the country's new
deity, and it was used as a rallying point during all of the QuitIndia marches.
