The 1971 war of liberation is undoubtedly the most momentous even in the long history of the Bengalee nation. The war not only led to the creation of a new nation; it also helped forge a national identity, removing the barriers that hindered its cultural expressions. The victory against a colonial force meant rejuvenation and the renewal of the spirit of creativity, which lies at the root of all literary and cultural productions. It is not surprising therefore, that the war of liberation has such a prominent place in our art and literature. 
The post - 1971 art scene is one of great zest and creative upsurge - the impetus being provided by the war of liberation. From Shilpacharya Zainul Abedin to the young painters and sculptors of today, many of whom were born after the event, the war of liberation has proved to be a source of inspiration, providing them with an endless supply of themes and motifs. The album brings together reproductions of number of selected works by 24 artists, which have as their theme the war of liberation.
