ABANINDARANATH TAGORE AND M. A. RAHMAN CHUGHTAI
THE VERY FIRST COMPARISON OF BOTH PAINTERS
Individual expression of identity
In 1911 Abanindaranath Tagore was the acknowledged Master Painter of India of the Bengal School. His fame was international and his stature in India extra-ordinary. No one even came close to them. Then emerged M.A. Rahman Chughtai from Punjab, India to challenge the position of the Master Painter of India, as a young teenager of Lahore. We can compare works done on the same theme set as a challenge of the times.
There are more works, which can be compared at the start of the career of the artist. Eventually we will post more.
