About A Moonlight Music Party

A Moonlight Music Party is a woodcut printing in color created by Abanindranath Tagore, a leading exponent of the Bengal School of Art. This painting is estimated to be worth $1,000 – $1,500 USD. The painting depicts a musical party at night under the moonlight. Abanindranath Tagore was a pioneer and leading exponent of the Bengal School of Art. He modernized indigenous Moghul and Rajput traditions in his paintings. Furthermore, he was also a noted writer, particularly for children. Abanindranath Tagore was the first major exponent of swadeshi values in Indian art which emphasizes on promoting self-reliance and nationalism. A Moonlight Music Party is an exceptional example of Abanindranath’s distinct art style that fuses Indian tradition with Western influences as reflected in chromoxylograph technology. The color palette used reflects Tagore’s preference to use muted tones that focus more on texture than colors themselves. In this artwork, we can recognize significant social commentary on class differences, cultural diversity and musical harmony.
