Centre has responded to a proposal by the Visva-Bharati to bring out a collection of Rabindranath Tagore's paintings as part of the 150th birth anniversary celebrations of the legend.

"Visva-Bharati is extremely pleased to inform that the Ministry of Culture, Government of India, has responded to its proposal to bring out a four-volume Rabindra Chitraavali (collection of painting) by granting the first instalment of the budgeted amount," a Visva-Bharati release said in Kolkata on Tuesday.

The volumes will be co-published with 'Pratikshan', a well known Bengali publisher.

The Visva-Bharati has also received positive feedback on its other proposals in connection with the celebrations, like setting up of a new 'Twin Museum Complex' for Rabindra Bhavana and Kala Bhavana in Santiniketan.

There was also good response to the plans of bringing out a chronological anthology of the entire publications of Tagore under the project 'Kalanukramik Rabindra Rachanabali', it claimed.
