Rabindranath Tagore: His World of Art is for the general reader who would like to know more about the multifaceted person that Rabindranath Tagore was. This book deals with Tagore’s entire world of art, which includes his artistic inheritance, his visual development and his use of colour not only in his art but also in his literature. It also features his work in the context of German Expressionism, his role in the development of a modern art in India, his idea of aesthetics and its introduction into Santiniketan as well as accounts of his exhibitions and his interaction with artists from all over the world. During their work at Rabindra-Bhavana and Kala-Bhavana, the authors Supriya Roy and Sushobhan Adhikary came across information on Tagore’s art and aesthetics that needed to be documented before it was lost—and that is when they decided to present it in a book, along with relevant photographs.
