    Remarks: Jogen Chowdhury in conversation with Suman Chattopadhyay. This interview records the course of gradual development of the artist and his art; influences of art education in this making as he studied here in his homeland and abroad; his search and aspirations. He speaks too of the different phases of development in him and his art as he moved on in life. The title itself is a pointer towards the intense ‘individualist’ and hence the true ‘modernist’ seated within the artist who is a representative of the 1970s generation of modern Indian artists from Bengal.
