Tagore in London

London’s Royal College of Art will be holding a week-long exhibition of paintings by Rabindranath Tagore and other Shantiniketan masters such as Nandalal Bose, Benode Behari Mukherjee, Sunanyani Devi and Abanindranath Tagore.

This article in the Times of India, written by Jhimli Mukherjee Pandey, talks about the exhibition:

A few years later, the painter Tagore turned to Rothenstein, when the latter was principal of the prestigious Royal College of Art, so that his paintings could be showcased. However, his dreams did not materialize. It is still not known why Rothenstein could not organize an exhibition of Tagore’s works at the Royal College of Art, what is known is that three exhibitions of Tagore’s paintings were held in London between 1930 and 1938.

Now, generations later, the Nobel laureate’s dream will finally see the light of day. The exhibition at the Royal College of Art will start on August 27 and end on September 1. “We are happy that we could fulfil his desire,” said an official of Visva Bharati, which has been instrumental in organizing the exhibition along with the London-based art house, SA Fine Arts.
