Rumee’s woodcut prints, lithographs and etchings have vividly portrayed human faces, nature and varied objects like rickshaw and wheels. He also experiments with amorphous forms and compositions, which have been used in his prints.
Portraits of Rabindranath Tagore have come up in a variety of styles and forms while the outlines explore human thoughts. A few portraits of common faces narrate the tales of human life with their notes of wish, pleasure and gloom.
