Rabindranath Tagore, in the prefatory note in his Birmingham exhibition had commented: ‘My pictures are my versification in lines. If by any chance, they are entitled to claim recognition, it must be primarily for some rhythmic significance of form, which is ultimate and not for any interpretation of an idea or representation of fact.’ Breaking away from his image as the philosopher-poet of Gitanjali, that permeated an aura of mysticism, an ambience of peace and sublime harmony, Tagore set forth on this adventurous journey in the wonderful domain of art at a time when both health and words were failing him. Painting was seen by him as the epilogue to his life, a means to recollect memories and refurbish certain images that haunted him.Tagore’s Paintings: Versification in Lines outlines the creative process behind Tagore’s experiments with ink and colour. What began as emendations and rhythmic linear traceries gradually took diagrammatic abstract forms, creating curves and loops or flowing in a jagged manner, and moving in search of recognisable bodies or towards figuration. Tagore’s unrestrained expression in lines played havoc in the complacent and stagnant world of Indian art and paved the way towards modernism. The images presented in this book have been selected to support the author’s fastidious research of Tagore’s paintings, and the captions added to them, complement his analyses.Printed Pages: 96 with 79 paintings & 24 colour photographs.
