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.
