As far as I know there is no permanent gallery.

But government of West Bengal has a huge collection of Roy's paintings ( as well as paintings by eminent artists Like Sri Nandalal Bose, Abanindranath Tagore, Gaganendranath Tagore, Paritosh Sen & others ). Exhibitions of these paintings are organised by Charukala Parshad (Information & Cultural Affairs Department , Govt of West Bengal ) on regular basis at Gaganendra Pradarshashala Gallery ( 2nd floor ).

There was a permanent gallery of paintings ( including a separate room dedicated to paintings by Rabindranath Tagore ) at the 2nd floor of Academy of Fine Arts. But that doesn't exist now !

That is sad if there's no way to see these. Other few artists i recall as very impressive are Kshitindranath Majumdar and Nandlal Bose. Most of these are represented at NGMA but i thought there were so few, representative, works of each that there may be many more in WB (if not Kolkata, perhaps further afield).

I'm like traditional influence paintings and these few are masters.

Plan a trip ! May be your stay at Kol coincides with one of these exhibitions

However there is one gallery which showcases rare paintings from Bengal throughout the year - ICCR Bengal Gallery . I've not been to this one, though I've visited ICCR several times on different occasions.

So at any given date, one cannot be sure what paintings in the possession of WB Gummint will be on display ? Is that the conclusion one should draw ?
