Collection of Ramkinker Vaij's paintings, India

Ramkinker Vaij (1910-1980) was a modern Indian painter and sculptor born in West Bengal. Although he is known for his expressionistic and exuberant sculptures, he was a talented painter whose achievements in painting have not been recognized as they have to be.

Like his sculptures, his paintings too are simply elegant with rural themes mainly of his native place Bankura. He mainly painted abstract compositions notably with modern idiom.

Shown in the video is a collection of his paintings such as Binodini (1948), Maternity- an oil painting, Threshing- an oil painting, Picnic.
