“Creation is not repetition, or correspondence in every particular between the object and its artistic presentation. The world of reality is all around us. When I look at this phenomenon with my artist’s eye, things are revealed in a different light which I try and recapture in my picture – call them realistic or not. There is a world of dreams and fantasies which exists only in a man’s imagination. If I can but depict this in my pictures I can beat the Creator at His own game.”

— Rabindranath Tagore
