Artist Ganesh Pyne dies of cardiac arrest

Pyne, one of the best known contemporary artists from the Bengal school, was 75

Kolkata: Ganesh Pyne, one of the best known contemporary artists from the Bengal school, died on Tuesday following a cardiac arrest. He was 75. Though he wasn’t as prolific as most of his contemporaries, Pyne was widely acclaimed in India and abroad for his sketches, watercolours, tempera and gouache paintings.

A student of the Government College of Art and Craft in Kolkata, Pyne’s art was said to be influenced as much by Abanindranath Tagore, arguably the best known artist from the Bengal school, as by Western masters such as Picasso and Rembrandt.
