Gaganendranath was born in September 1867 in Kolkata and was the nephew of multi-talented Rabindranath Tagore. He was a self taught artist who had a short-lived academic career and later took an interest in all things Swadeshi. In 1907 he founded the Indian Society of Oriental Art along with his brother Abanindranath Tagore. His artworks are identifiably Indian with oriental influences from the East. Being greatly influenced by Japanese artist Yokoyama Taikan, his works carried a Japanese stamp. He is best known for his political cartoons and social satires on Westernized Bengalis. His work was exhibited in the 22nd exhibition de Societe des peintres orientalistes francais (1914) in Paris, London, Belgium and Holland, and in a travelling exhibition organised by the American Federation of Art and ISOA (1924) in London and Germany, and he exhibited in the Athene Gallery in Geneva in 1928. Gagendranath died in Kolkata in 1938.
