Abanindranath Tagore His Early Work

Calcutta: Indian Museum, 1951. 4to (31x24.5cm), 19+xiii pp, 13 color plates, in paperback pictorial binding.


This album presents art-lovers and students of art early pictures of paintings and frescoes of Abanindranath, the master-artist, and are steeped in emotion. They breath the simplicity of a child, the bashfulness of a village bride, and the pathos of a pastoral flute.Latterly in his pictures from Meghaduta and Omar Khayyam and lastly in those from the Arabian Nights, this note of the pastoral flute seems to have flourished into the resonant melody of the Vina. The close of the Vrndaban cycle seems to have birth to the cycle of Mathura.But heart of the artist, rich in emotion and sympathy, delights more in Vrndaban phase. I seeks to pierce through the veil of technique in order to reveal in art the fullest expression of emotion and love.It is also remarkable how he has endeavored to liberate Indian art from the trammels of ancient and medieval technique - the technique of Ajanta, Mughal, Kangra and other schools of painting.
