The New Infectionism, Postcard to Gauribala Dasi, Santiniketan
23 June 1922
Collection: DAG Museums
While Abanindranath explored a pan-Asian identity in art, Gaganendranath Tagore experimented with caricature, Cubism and a host of other techniques. In this postcard, Abanindranath makes a tongue-in-cheek reference to what he calls ‘The New Infectionism,’ showing that such stylistic experiments are not beyond him either.
