The Art of Rabindranath Tagore
Speaker: John Stevens
Venue: Cultural Centre and your home (see below)
Date: 12th December at 18:00 (Spanish time)

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) is arguably the most important Indian artistic figure of   the modern era. The first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, claimed that he had   two  gurus: Gandhi and Tagore. A renowned poet, novelist, composer and painter, Tagore is also the only person in history to have written the national anthems for two countries (India and Bangladesh). He became a global sensation when he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913, the first non-European to do so. This lecture provides an introduction to Tagore’s remarkable life and work, including his novels, poetry, songs and paintings. It also explores the role Tagore’s art played in the story of India’s fight for independence.
