The ‘Krishna-Lila’ series represents Abanindranath Tagore’s point of departure initiating his engagement with colonialism and modernity. In this eBook, I locate Abanindranath Tagore within the regional cultural history of Bengal, the larger cultural context of the Bengal Renaissance and the local history of the Jorasanko Tagores of Kolkata. The trope of the Krishna Lila as a historical carrier of revolutionary ideas is traced in its semantic transformations through these situated histories leading to its artistic manifestation in the work of Abanindranath as the locus of communitarian messages resistant to modernity and constitutive of an alternate intercultural national space.
