 Intricately painted by Patuas, this Kalighat Pat portrays a Babu, resplendent in colonial attire, seated elegantly on a chair. With skilled strokes, the artist captures the Babu engrossed in playing the sitar, his fingers delicately plucking the strings. The painting exudes a blend of cultural influences, evident in the Babu's attire - a beautiful stole draped over his shoulders, adorned with intricate patterns, and British-inspired shoes that signify a merging of local and colonial styles.

Kalighat Pat paintings, renowned for their vibrant colours and bold lines, offer a glimpse into the cultural crosscurrents of 19th-century Kolkata. This particular artwork not only celebrates the mastery of the Patua artist but also serves as a testament to the fusion of traditional Indian artistry with the influences of British colonialism.
