Abanindranath Tagore (1871-1951) was an artist and writer from the renowned Tagore family and a nephew of Rabindranath Tagore. He was the key figure behind the Bengal School of Art and introduced a unique Swadeshi style at a time when contemporary India primarily emulated Western art. Abanindranath revitalized Rajput and Mughal art, creating ethereal watercolors. His later works also integrated Chinese and Japanese influences. He held the position of Bageswari Professor of Oriental Art at Calcutta University and his writings and lectures on art continue to be influential in art theory and practice. In addition to his contributions to art, Abanindranath authored literary works cherished by both children and adults, such as "Buro Angla," "Khirer Putul," "Bhoot-Potrir Deshe," "Nalak," and "Raj Kahini." His writings are characterized by whimsical imagination and his ability to vividly depict scenes with words.
