Organised along the sidelines of the India Art Fair 2016, this exhibition, entitled Celebration, features some of the biggest names in the history of modern art in India. M.F. Husain, F.N. Souza, Jamini Roy and Satish Gujral among others are part of this group show that celebrates the best that Indian art history has to offer.
The paintings featured here include some never-before-seen works by these artists that nonetheless shed light on their respective oeuvres, enabling us to understand their visions, their experiments with form and style, a little better. Accompanying this exhibition is a comprehensive catalogue, 200-pages long, that not only includes artworks from the show and astute essays by art critic Keshav Malik, but also archives some of the early shows of modern masters at Kumar Gallery, which is playing host to this event.
Celebration opens on 25 January at Kumar Gallery, Sunder Nagar, New Delhi, and goes on till 5 February 2016.
