‘Drawing was to Nandalal the basis of good art. He made it his practise to sketch and draw as regularly as a musician practices an instrument… He sketched whenever he travelled. The greater part of these drawings or sketches are on postcards; they are done either with a pen or a brush and are basically linear; the aim was simply to capture the subject and the moment briefly to delineate form, to describe it and give it life. The drawings on postcards have a spontaneity and brevity not seen in more formal works. They exist as evidence of the artist’s unceasing desire to master visual data.’ (Jaya Appasamy, ‘Nandalal – Master Draughtsman’, Nandalal Bose Centenary Exhibition, exhibition catalogue, National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, pp. 28 - 29)
