Rare oversized portrait of the Bengali polymath

Bengali poet, playwright, philosopher, and author (1861–1941) who became the first non-European to win a Nobel Prize (Literature) in 1913. Scarce vintage sepia 8.25 x 11.5 paperstock photo of Rabindranath Tagore in a noble bust-length pose, signed in the lower border in Bengali in fountain pen. A small printed caption bearing his name is affixed to the right of the autograph. In very good to fine condition, with tears to the top, and to the side borders, repaired with tape on the reverse. The largest signed portrait of Tagore that we have ever offered, and a great portrayal of one of literature's foremost minds.
