About Us

  History of Indian Art is as old as the Indian civilization itself and every major period of history has given India newer modes of expression and newer forms of art. The influence of modern art was felt long before Independence in cities like Mumbai, Calcutta, Madras, where school of art were established by the British. The Bombay Art Society was founded in 1888, which was the most crucial phase when India was approaching Independence from the colonial rule when the Indian Art was pregnant with discontinuities, conflicts and high points. The shifting positions of revivalist and anti-revivalist stands shared by the artists of from various parts of the sub-continent further enhanced the complexity of the evolution of art during that time.
