  1. I wish to use this image for a haiku on my blog, Could you please let me know the image source and attributions needed to be given?

    • Hello,
      I’ve just picked up your message. Do you mean the black and white Jamini Roy? That was owned by the gallery, so would be ‘Courtesy CM Fine Arts’.

      Hope this helps. Do send me the link when you get the chance (charles@cmfinearts.com)
      Best, Charles
