India Painting of The Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool on Exhibit at LSUS

March 09, 2015

Chaitali Chatterjee’s latest painting, “The Reflecting Pool” has been acquired by the International Lincoln Association for the International Lincoln Center at LSUS.

Chatterjee is originally from the eastern province of Bengal long known for its artistic traditions.  She has been the recipient of a number of awards at national and international competitions.  Her formal training was received at Delhi’s College of Art.  More than three-quarters of her 150 paintings have been sold during thirteen solo exhibitions and other group exhibitions. 

Critics have noted her imaginative use of space and colors.  Dr. William D. Pederson, the director of the International Lincoln Center, said that he is “delighted with the colorful abstract painting” which highlights the thinking and reflecting dimension of the DC site.  The Lincoln Reflecting Pool itself was inspired by the garden pools at the Taj Mahal built from 1632-1654.  Pederson added that “it is very fitting that the Center acquired the painting this year at the end of the 150th commemoration of the American Civil War–suggesting how the North and the South have come together in the United States, as well as the global legacy between the East and West.”

The painting will remain on exhibit at 323 Branson Hall through the summer at LSUS.
