Kalighat Cat - Inspired By The Lost Art Of Kalighat, Silk Scarf Collection

'Kalighat paintings' have participated in the emergence of Bengali identity in the colonial capital, in the face of increasing Europe­anization of the city’s intellectual and cultural life. The Kalighat cat with a fish in its mouth is often interpreted as an illustration of a Bengali proverb.
The composition suggests the cat is a satirical representation of a false ascetic who despite renouncing the world is unable to control its lust.

Kalighat paintings originated in the 19th century Bengal, in the vicinity of Kali Temple in Kalighat, Kolkata, India. Calcutta was the capital of British India from 1833-1912. By the 1830s, artists had arrived in Calcutta from rural villages in Bengal and began to produce paintings that reflected the local history, mythology, customs and conflicts of a colonised society. As a popular art form, these artists are recognised for their use of brilliant color, simplified images and swift brushstrokes that became the hallmark of Kalighat painting in the 19th and early 20th century. They became very popular and were carried back as mementos to Britain, Russia, Czechoslovakia, France, and the United States. Many world-renowned, modern Indian artists like Jamini Roy's inventive style was derived from the Kalighat paintings consisting of lively, bold and sweeping brush strokes inspite of being trained in classical European painting style.
