Mukul Chandra Dey (23 July 1895 – 1 March 1989) was a student of Rabindranath Tagore's Santiniketan and is considered as a pioneer of drypoint-etching in India. Dey is most associated with his gracefully drawn images of Bengali villagers executed in dry-point. Some of his finer works are dry-point etchings that have been hand-coloured with watercolors, coloured pencils, or thin washes of ink. Mukul Dey's works can be found in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the Indian Museum, Kolkata, the National Gallery of Modern Art NGMA in Mumbai, and the National Gallery of Art, New Delhi. The artist was also the illustrator for many book projects, one of his earliest was a scholarly book Shantiniketan Bolpur School of Rabindranath Tagore, which he illustrated for the later Nobel Prize winner in 1916. Mukul Dey was also the first Indian Principal of the Government School of Art and Craft in Calcutta, and remained in that post until 1943. He continued to tour his work and remain an influential figure in India until his death in 1989.
