||Inspired by Japanese artist Yokoyama Taikan, Gaganendranath's
landscapes achieve the right blend of capturing Bengal's vast
landscapes and romanticizing them. His landscapes are
exceptionally emotive, in
that they create a feeling of what the artist attempts to
express. His earliest sketches and landscapes date back to 1905.
This painting 'Rainy Season',
evokes the sensation of monsoons, and exemplifies the
artists' mastery over the Japanese wash technique. The use of
tempera adds a gentle fragility to the landscapes.
Gaganendranath's interest in life and later art, was limited to
and conditioned by his love for everything swadeshi (native).
