NANDALAL BOSE

Abanindranath's Companion

Bose was invited to join the staff of the Government Art School, but he did not. He helped Abanindranath to prepare a catalogue of works of art in his house. This rare collection had art works of various styles, statues of stone and metals, ivory carvings, dolls from different parts of India and. costumes and works of art brought from Nepal and Tibet. Bose made copies of some of the oldest works.

Abanindranath's Art School was not just a school but a center of various activities. In addition to the study of classical art and folk art, there were recitations and discussions. Its object was to extend and deepen the enjoyment of the arts and to find out their values.

An event, which is important in the history of Indian art, took place in 1907. As a result of the efforts of Havell, Sir John Woodroffe, Sister Nivedita, Abanindranath Tagore, Gaganendranath Tagore and others, the Indian Society of Oriental Art came into being. Nandalal Bose had a close contact with this organization. This Society had several objects. Some of these were to create interest in fine arts in the general public, to organize art exhibitions for this purpose and to help artists.
