‘Nandalal studied and observed nature through his sketches and drawings on postcards. This apparently modest aspect of his oeuvre is actually one of the most revolutionary and deeply spiritual, and it therefore affords his art its uniquely Indian cast. His self devised practice of constant sketching of different subjects in different styles was his way of finding rhythm that he believed to pervade the multiplicity of all things in nature through a joyful act of lila (play). In this way Nandalal brought an authenticity and sincerity to modern Indian art in a way that is not derivative of any foreign model.’ (Sonya Rhie Quintanilla and Tiffany Lee, in consultation with R. Siva Kumar, ‘The Abode of Peace: Nandalal Bose at Santiniketan’, Rhythms of India, The Art of Nandalal Bose, San Diego, 2008, p. 125)
