‘If words are pictures spoken… then painting is story in form (rup-katha) told by colour and line,’ said Abanindranath Tagore, wherein rup-katha was translated as fable or allegory. Tagore, the founder of Bengal School, an art movement that urged other artists to draw inspiration from Indian heritage, wrote and illustrated children’s books. We find in this Untitled work a gremlin-like figure from Tagore’s fantastical creations, sitting on a giant book and scribbling away, almost resembling a scene from contemporary literary works.
