Gagnendranath Thakur Sailoz Mukherjee Jamini Roy

Gaganendranath,   Sailoz Mukhopadhyay,   Jamini Roy : some of the greatest of Bengal School artists

In the balcony of Tagores' ancestral house, regular addas used to organised where poets like Rabindranath Tagore, Saratchandra Chattaerjee and occassionally Nazrul Islam used to gather and discuss literature, read each other's poems or sing songs. One middle-aged man used to sit by the side of the window and listen to all this but speak very little. Sitting by the side of the window, he painted while in the midst of all the noise around. He was Abanindranath Tagore . Contrary to popular belief that artists require seclusion and peace to paint, Abanindranath painted while in crowd.

A foreigner used to stay in the next building. The man was slightly mad and used to often loiter in the terrace in a loose fitting long dress with big silver buttons. He was a Jew and since Indians had not seen many Jews in those days, the only Jewish character that came to Abanindra's mind was Shylock form Shakespear's novel "The merchant of Venice"

Abanindrantah used to call this man Shylock and has used his attire to garb his Shahjahan's persona in his painting.
