The first floor of the Sahitya & Sangeet Natak Bhavan houses the Portrait Gallery, which displays 46 portraits of the most established and prominent figures that have contributed immensely in the field of Assamese Literature, Music, Dance, Theatre and Fine Arts. Along with these portraits, specimen handwritings of the respective stalwarts are also displayed with their date of birth and death. The Portrait Gallery is a modest endeavour to make our future generations aware of the worthy sons of Assam and hence to inspire them to make their contribution to the rich legacy of Assamese Literature and Culture. The second phase of the Portrait Gallery which includes portraits of 71 prominent personalities of the State is almost ready on the Second floor of the Sahitya & Sangeet Natak Bhavan. This Portrait Gallery at SSK has been established with support from Indian Museum, Kolkata.
