From today’s Terrill Welch Gallery newsletter - A Brush With Life.... I asked a question about what writings by Rabindranath Tagore I might want to start with in my discovery of his work. Well, as you might expect, an art collector and newsletter subscriber responded. The highly recommended suggestions are - Stray Birds and Fireflies and the play The Postoffice. I chose to start with a kindle copy of Fireflies with its 253 poems, written while Tagore was recovering from an heart ailment in Hungary and published in 1928. In this 2013 edition, each poem is interestingly (and sometimes distractingly) illustrated Alberta Hutchinson. I read until I came to this short poem (p. 17) and concluded that it was perfect for sharing in this issue focused on - mornings. The departing night’s one kiss on the closed eyes of morning glows in the star of dawn. In the process of reading the introduction of Fireflies, I discovered that Tagore also painted. At first glance, his work is possibly more emotive and in line with art therapy than with masterly painting skills. However, that said, the power of his expression with a brush should not be too lightly dismissed. I include just one favourite example here with its a link for you to explore his painting go further if you wish.
