About Asoka's Queen

The artwork titled “Asoka’s Queen” is a portrait created by the eminent artist Abanindranath Tagore in the year 1910. Bearing the finesse of Tagore’s creative expression, this portrait is a testament to the artist’s mastery in portraying figures with historic and cultural significance.

In the artwork, a queen is depicted in a profile view oriented towards the right, poised mid-movement with an air of contemplation. Her attire and jewelry suggest royal standing and connect to a period aesthetic presumably reflective of the time of Emperor Asoka, an iconic ruler in Indian history. Her garb is traditional and elegant, marked by the grace and serenity typical of Tagore’s style, while her posture and delicate hand gesture seem to convey a moment of introspection or quietude.

The background elements, including the floral patterns and various objects, are rendered with a decorative commitment, enhancing the ambiance and setting of the scene. These elements harmonize with the queen’s figure, accentuating the narrative of nobility and refined tranquility. The soft color palette and the intricate line work are characteristic of Tagore’s approach during this era, reflecting the confluence of cultural influences and the revivalist sentiments in Indian art of the early 20th century.
