The Pictorial Sojourn of Rabindranath Tagore

Venue : Bengal Gallery

Date : December 4, 2009 to January 4, 2010

Curated by: Indrani Ghosh

Rabindra Bharati University housed at Jorasanko, the poet’s ancestral home, has a rare collection of 46 paintings of Tagore. As the original paintings are brittle and unframed, the digitized prints of the same were specially prepared with an accompanying catalogue and were on display for the first time in the Bengal Gallery of RTC where they remained until January 4, 2010.

The collection included figurative drawings, scribblings, landscapes, countenances in deeply pensive mood and portraits.
