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.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
