Fourth Rabindranath Tagore Memorial Lecture will be organised on 28 November 2016 at IIAS. Professor B.N. Goswamy, Eminent Art Historian will be delivering this lecture.
That the worlds of art and thought are intimately linked is a fact that we gloss over while looking at Indian paintings, for we tend to see them, unthinkingly, as works produced by anonymous craftsmen who kept on plying imitative brushes over the centuries. But a close, intent look can reveal much: the intent of the artist, for instance, or the levels of thought that lie embedded in them. There is soaring imagination somewhere there in these works, and layered allusions.
The lecture is aimed at ‘reading’ a selection of paintings differently from the way we generally do, and seeing them at once as having sprung from thinking minds and, to use Rabindranath Tagore’s words, from “some creative impulse or expression”.
