His depiction of daily life became popular, after haripura adhiveshan. I think common people who came there must have seen this canvas, and could easily relate with them. Earlier such paintings were for only rich people. I don’t know whether in Bengal they had paintings bought by middle class? May be paintings of NandLal might have infused enthusiasm in common people to posses these painting-if however they were affordable?

He was also influenced by nature-tribal or village community. thus he painted many such beautifull canvas depicting seems to be tribal life. Santhal as they are known now.My St Nandlal Bose Info
