Untitled (Bapu-ji), c. 1930s
18 x 11.7 inch (h x w)
Graphite on Tracing Paper

Private collection, New Delhi

Once the graphics art department and its studio was set up in Santiniketan, Nandalal was one of the few artists who used it enthusiastically, making lithographs, dry points and wood cuts, made often as illustrations for books, such as Rabindranath Tagore’s children’s primer Sahaj Path. Nandalal Bose immortalised the Mahatma’s Dandi March in a black and white linocut, revisited here in this drawing where Gandhi is depicted striding purposefully with a staff—an image that came to be the iconic emblem of the freedom movement.
