Abanindranath Tagore presented three paintings for the 1903 Delhi Durbar organized by Governor-General, Lord Curzon to commemorate the coronation of British Emperor Edward VII. By looking at these three paintings based on the Orientalist fantasy of the Taj Mahal and the Mughal Empire, this paper draws out a thinly disguised allegory on the relationship between imperialism and artistic subjectivity and points to the hybrid constitution of the nation and the work of art as a response to colonialism.
