Early life[ edit ] In the early s several illustrations were published in Sadhana magazine, and in Chitrangada, and other works by Rabindranath Tagore. He also illustrated his own books. About the year he took lessons from the vice-principal of the Government School of Art , studying in the traditional European academic manner, learning the full range of techniques, but with a particular interest in watercolour.

He founded the Indian Society of Oriental Art and was its most important artist. He was also the founder of the Bengal School of Art, which is seen as being instrumental in the advent of Indian painting as it is known today. Tagore was concerned that Western artistic styles were exerting too much influence on Indian painters, and promoted a style based instead on a modern interpretation of traditional Rajput and Moghul art. Personal Life Tagore was born in the neighborhood of Jorasanko in northern Calcutta. He was part of an important and influential family: his grandfather was the son of Dwarkanath Tagore, who was among the earliest Indian industrial entrepreneurs. He also had a considerable artistic heritage through his uncle, the poet Rabindranath Tagore, as well as through his artist grandfather and older brother. This experience convinced him that his future was as an artist.
