March to Freedom

March to Freedom re-interprets the well-known story of the Indian freedom struggle and anti-colonial movement. It draws on DAG’s extensive collection of modern and early modern Indian art, and ranges from eighteenth and nineteenth century European paintings and prints, to unknown works by Indian artists that merit greater recognition, as well as several iconic pieces by celebrated modern artists.

Iconic Masterpieces of Indian Modern Art

How did Indian modern art develop? Most exhibitions have tended to trace the development of Indian modern (or pre-modern) art to Raja Ravi Varma, the Bengal School, and the art movements that followed, ignoring the role that European artists have played in providing an impetus to the creation of art styles and techniques that have gone into the making of the diverse and colourful canvas of art practice in the country. Iconic Masterpieces of Indian Modern Art starts at this cusp point to undertake a visual journey spread over two centuries that depicts Western and Indian masters whose works have stood the test of time. This thought-provoking exhibition is one of the finest expositions of modern art with artworks distinguished for their rarity, historicity, and high quality.   Click here to know more.
