Exhibition on Famine, Zainul Abedin

•Zainul Abedin created his famine painting set, which were exhibited in 1944. The miserable situation of the starving people during the great famine of Bengal in 1943 touched his sensitive heart very deeply.
•What he did was not just documented the famine, but in his sketches the famine showed its sinister face through the skeletal figures of people fated to die of starvation in a man-made difficulty.
•The artist depicted this inhuman story with very human emotions. This drawings became iconic images of human suffering.
•This particular brand of realism combines social inquiry and the protest with higher aesthetics.
