Inauguration Celebration – The Last Harvest: Painting by Rabindranath Tagore
May 23, 2012
The McMichael Canadian Art Collection hosted a special reception on Wednesday, May 23 for the opening of the exhibition, The Last Harvest: Paintings by Rabindranath Tagore, in the presence of dignitaries from India, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty, Minister Michael Chan, and approximately 200 guests from the South Asian Community and the gallery. Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) is beloved by Indians as a poet and writer. He was recognized around the world as the first non-European to be awarded a Nobel Prize for literature, yet few outside India know that he was also a highly regarded visual artist. The Last Harvest: Paintings by Rabindranath Tagore is the one-and-only Canadian showing, on display at the McMichael gallery from May 24 to July 15, 2012.
