Description

Rabindranath Tagore (1861–1941) is one of India’s best known cultural icons. He was an influential national figure of India, whose genius has transcended boundaries. Besides being a poet, he was a novelist, a writer of short stories and plays, a composer of songs, an essayist, and a philosopher. Painting was the last art form to enter his rich creative life. In mid-20th century, Rabindranath was the first Indian artist to be extensively exhibited in the West.
 
This publication is produced in conjunction with three travelling exhibitions of Rabindranath Tagore’s paintings, organized as part of India’s National Commemoration of 150th Birth Anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore, by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India. The exhibitions are travelling to eight cities across the world. Since the 10-city international show undertaken by him in 1930, this is the first time that such a large body of Rabindranath’s work is travelling internationally. 
 
Along with over 200 works by Rabindranath, this unique volume brings together essays by leading scholars from around the world, which lend insight into Rabindranath Tagore as a painter as well as locate his paintings within the larger framework of his multifaceted creative work.
