The Catalogue locates the paintings in time and space, offering scholars useful clues that they could pursue to study the influences and resonances that made their way into Tagore's literary works and paintings; Locations, companions and associations Leaving their mark on the works. The images in the four volumes and the text in the Catalogue, corresponding to the thumbnail reproductions, taken together, provide a rich insight into the creative mind of the poet-painter.
