Nandalal Bose Exhibition
This remarkably sensitive image of a goat evokes the patience and forbearance of the humble people of India’s rural communities and embodies the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi and espoused by Nandalal. Nandalal executed numerous studies of the daily aspects of village life, including goats, a constant presence in the Santal villages near Santiniketan. He experimented with different media, including a variety of printmaking techniques that were being actively pursued at Kala Bhavan. The emphasis on the technical skill of line drawing necessary to create of etchings appealed to Nandalal, and he produced several superb series of etchings during the mid-1930s.
