Notes

Very attractive signed portrait of the great Bengali poet, playwright, philosopher and author, captured at the height of his fame, inscribed in ink on the mount "Rabindranath Tagore, June 17 1921"; also signed by the distinguished photographer Hanns Holdt (1880-1972).
"Tagore's visit to Germany in June 1921 was a sensation, even a phenomenon; during 1921-2 his books sold in huge numbers... The high points were his visits to Berlin, Munich and to the School of Wisdom run by Count Hermann Keyserling at Darmstadt" (Dutta & Robinson (eds.), Selected Letters of Rabindranath Tagore, 1997, p. 270).
