My Pictures: A Collection of Paintings by Rabindranath Tagore
My Pictures: A Collection of Paintings by Rabindranath Tagore
Description
From the Jacket:

Scratched-out erring words and phrases gave birth to the painter Rabindranath. His aesthetic self was yearning to turn discord into harmony and death into renewal. And we see the emergence of rhythmic contours and characters in his lines.

Tagore took to painting only in his later life in the 1920s when he was already a name to reckon with in the world of literature. Although entirely untained, he emerged as a major artist in the Indian art scene with his thought-provoking innovations.

"I am hopelessly entangled in the spell that the lines have cast around me….It is the element of unpredictability in art that seems to fascinate me strongly." - he said. From creating simple waves, he goes on to draw a captivating creature of hybrid anatomy suggesting brute force or the familiar Santiniketan trees and pathways.

A sense of drama is central to Rabindranath's paintings. The darkness in many of his paintings is not the darkness of the night…His self-portraits reflect a deeper psychological need - that of a creative person always in search of his self. But it is his landscapes, more soothing than his grotesques or human or animal figures that remain his best admired works.

"Limited in space" but "unlimited in diversity" - that is Rabindranath's Tagore's painting.
