It is to Abanindranath Tagore’s credit that the Bengal School of Art took shape in a bid to understand our rich Indian heritage. Tagore, however, also encouraged artists to look at Oriental art, drawing inspiration from Japanese and Chinese painting techniques to make effective use of ink in their works. In this painting, Tagore paints a dog named Lucy in what looks like an Indian setting. The controlled brushstrokes show the artist’s dexterity and reveal how he worked in small format to create works with a lasting impression.
