Rabindrachitravali: Paintings of Rabindranath Tagore (In 4 Volumes)

 
Rabindranath Tagore (Author)
Synopsis

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. His works cover almost all the established genres of literature and the performing arts. As a major thinker, he addressed a wide range of issues thrown up by the nationalist movement in the country and the global crises of his time. He conceived and set up Visva-Bharati as a university and a centre of Indian Culture with international connectivity. Late in life, he turned to painting, producing a formidable body of work, pioneering modernism in Indian art.


Rabindra Chitravali is the most comprehensive documentation of any modern Indian artist to date, in its collection of more than 2000 images of Tagore's paintings, drawings and doodles, most of them reproduced-with special care to capture the tones and colours of the originals-for the first time ever. A rich critical apparatus-including commentaries, notes, relevant information and technical details relating to the works reproduced, and an overarching introduction, all provided by Professor R Siva Kumar; translations of Tagore's own writings on art and aesthetics and his own paintings, culled from his essays, correspondence, notes and recorded conversations, and published reviews of his exhibitions-provides a framework for a fresh reading of the works.
