Scratched-out erring words and phrases gave birth to the painter Rabindranath Tagore. His aesthetic self was yearning to turn discord into harmony and death into renewal. And we see the emergence of rhythmic contours and characters in his lines. Tagore took to painting only in his later life in the 1920s when he was already a name to reckon with in the world of literature. Although entirely untrained, he emerged as a major artist in the Indian art scene with his thought-provoking innovations. A sense of drama is central to Rabindranath s paintings. Th e darkness in many of his paintings is not the darkness of the night..His self-portraits reflect a deeper p sychological need that of a creative person always in search of self. But it is his landscapes, more soothing than his grotesques or human or animal figures that remain his best admired works. Limited in space but unlimited in diversity this is Rabindranath Tagore s painting.
