The Story of Indian Modern Art
By Georgina Bexon
After Indian Independence in 1947 a group of talented artists, who formed the movement called The Bombay Progressives Artists’ Group, created a new art for a new country. The paintings show a country in turmoil and relate the fascinating story of the transition and growth of the new India. We explore how Indian art threw off the colonial influence and developed modern masterpieces and a thriving global business.
