Correct Answer : (2) Jamini Roy distinguished himself in the field of Painting.

Explanation :

Jamini Roy (1887-1972), is especially admired for his painting that brought solace to the viewers in a tormented time of history.

He gave a novel and daring direction to the art of colonial India by evolving his idiom of expression out of Bengal’s folk painting, discarding at once both of the dominating trends of his days, namely, Western academicism, then insipid and decadent, and Neo-Bengal school, which tended to become cold and fragile.

Jamini Roy concept of art’s agelessness has gained importance in the context of the present generation artists’ new search for the roots.

He was a Bengali, Indian painter. He was the first awardee of Lalit Kala award. He was honoured with Padma Bhushan in the year 1954.
