PM INAUGURATES “THE MASTER’S STROKES: ART OF RABINDRA NATH TAGORE” EXHIBITION

NEW DELHI, INDIA, May 9, 2010: The Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh inaugurated “The Master’s Strokes: Art of Rabindranath Tagore” exhibition at the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi today, honoring the 150th Birth Anniversary of one of the world’s foremost cultural personalities.

Rabindranath Tagore’s genius as a poet, dramatist, philosopher, educationist and composer won him universal acclaim. His genius as a painter is however less well known, perhaps because he began painting when he was well into his 60s. I am thus happy that the National Gallery of Modern Art is commencing our national celebrations by showcasing some of these precious contributions of this versatile genius to the world of Indian art,” said Dr. Singh.
