Bichitra was the name of a studio, which was provided by Rabindranath Tagore to the painters particularly his nephews Abinandranath and Gaganendranath Tagore of Bengal School of Art. It was located at the Jorasanko House, the ancestral home of the Tagores. What we know as Bichitra today is called the Rabindra Bhavan, a Research Centre and Museum where the Gurudev’s personal belongings, paintings & various editions of his works are exhibited. This today’s Bichitra has been designed by the Rabindranath tagore’s son Shamindranath Tagore.

Project Bichitra

Moreover, in May 2013, the Bichitra Tagore Variorum Website under the Project Bichitra has been launched by Indian President at the Jadhavpur University, Kolkata. This website would convey the message of Tagore’s art and thought across the world. The valuable material has been provided by Visva-Bharati, Harvard University and other institutions.
