Gaganendranath Tagore  (Contemporary Indian Art Series)
Gaganendranath Tagore (Contemporary Indian Art Series)
Description
From the Jacket

This series dealing with contemporary Indian art has been undertaken by the Lalit Kala Akademi with the intention of popularizing the work of India's leading painters and sculptors.

In conformity with the general policy of the Akademi these pocket books are being sold on a no profit basis. Each publication will contain a short note introducing the artist and a selection of his work to the public at large.

Gaganendranath Tagore

'Such a sensitive mind as Gaganendranath's I had indeed rarely met with, for his mind ranged over every field of culture. Each subject touched on brought from him some quiet comment. Showing an unfailing critical discernment. In his own paintings I observed a similar sensitiveness. He had a beautiful touch…a refinement of insight which gave quality to all his handiwork.'

The above quotation from an obituary by Rothenstein is much more than a conventional tribute. It is a critical judgment comprehending the work and the personality of Gaganendranath Tagore. Gaganendranath was an epitome of what Rabindranath used to describe as an ideal of completeness of life. There was no compartmentalization in his artistic make-up. Whatever aspect of life he touched upon, he gave it an artistic orientation. An aristocrat of the spirit, he would perhaps have been most at home in the Florence of the Medicis. That does not mean, however, that he was out of step with the life and manners of his own times.

Gaganendranath was born in 1867, the eldest son of Rabindranath's cousin, Gunendranath. Lest there be some confusion as to the inter-relationship among the better-known. Of the Tagores, appended is a selective list of names from the genealogical tree of the family.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
