    This profile is being created on behalf of Late Mrs Krishna Dutta, who got no recognition of her talent during her life-time.


    Born on 20th September 1942, Krishna Dutta did her M.A in history from Calcutta University and took up museology. She never received any formal education in Fine Arts but was trained in Indian painting under the tutelage of Late Mukunda Majumdar. Her painting titled "HARIYE GECHHI AMI" (I am lost) was awarded the best water color painting by the great film maestro Satyajit Ray in the exhibition organized by the Calcutta Art Society in 1966.
    She was a homemaker all through her life but painting had always been a breathing outlet a "SPIRACLE" for her. She continued to paint in her leisure hours and finally in December 2010 a solo exhibition of her 39 water color paintings was organized. At the end of the deepest night, hidden locked up talent saw the sudden flash of dawn. But time was too short for her and destiny was near. On 18th September 2011, she passed away after fighting a heroic battle with cancer. Her spirit and essence will live in her paintings forever.

    SIREN Baroque kicks off its third season with Fyer, Fyer!, the first of four concerts exploring the ancient elements, in a special collaboration with the innovative baroque dancers Laura Careless and Marisol Cabrera. The program features blazingly passionate works by Morley, Monteverdi, Rebel, Scarlatti, and Handel, all of which use fire as a metaphor for nature’s wrath, spiritual zeal, lustful ardor, or the terrors of hell. With SIREN Baroque’s “impassioned performances” (Early Music America) accompanied by strikingly seductive choreography, it promises to be an evening to ignite the senses.
