The Passing of Shah Jahan and more art by Abanindranath Tagore

The Passing of Shah Jahan, 1903
14.5 x 9.7 inch (h x w)
Chromolithograph on paper

Printed at the Indian Press (Allahabad) Abanindranath Tagore was known for his highly expressive, nuanced compositions rendered in a new and independent ‘Indian-style’, drawing on the design and calligraphic patterns of the late medieval miniatures. Presented here is a chromolithograph, which is a fitting example to conclude just why the artist was considered the founder of a ‘new school of Indian painting’.
