Immersion into Parisian artistic life

Sen’s paintings displayed bright colours with vegetal and human expression. He says everything in life is attainable with love and courage, so he coined “love and courage” to be his signature.  His painting exhibitions continued alongside in several places.


When India was partitioned 1947 to create Pakistan, a new country for Muslims, about 20 million people of Bengal and Punjab were displaced and brutally victimized. Sen’s wealthy, literate family had huge landed property in erstwhile East Bengal, the present Bangladesh, which was carved out to be East Pakistan for Muslims. So for being Hindus Sen’s family was overnight evicted from their home. Without taking any possessions, they fled for their lives amidst people warring over religion, and so became squatted refugees in West Bengal.
