Description
 
2 modernist impressions by the Bengali poet and artist Sir Rabindranath Tagore, which are to be presented to the London Borough of Croydon, were brought home from Calcutta by Mr Ranald Newson of Croydon, in the liner Mulbera which arrived at Plymouth today. They were given to Mr Newson as a mark of esteem for his work at the college of Santiniketan, a semi-religious institution founded by Sir Rabindranath Tragore in 1900, with instructions that he should pass them on to the Croydon Authorities for exhibition in the Town Hall. Mr Newson said that the paintings were examples of the extremely advanced art of Tagore. They have no titles, and it was impossible to define their meaning in a conventional way, as they were impressions of the artist's subconscious mind. Both works are executed in ink.""
