EXHIBITION - Aspects of modern indian painting (Sep 27-Oct 01, 2002) :

SaffronArt and Pundole Art Gallery return to New York this fall, with their annual exhibition of modern Indian art, which seeks to provide an insight into "Aspects of Modern Indian Painting" through a seminal collection of works by 12 leading Indian modernists. It promises to be not only an exceptional collection, but one of the largest ever held, of works, for display and sale - to be launched with a private cocktail reception on September 27th for invited guests.

This exhibition includes 12 of the leading modernists, including some members of the Progressive artists group such as, F.N. Souza, S.H. Raza, and M.F. Husain, among others, who have been influential in shaping the face of contemporary art from the Indian sub-continent. The exhibition examines various aspects of the development of contemporary Indian art, in terms of the aesthetics, the development of particular artists, their thematic threads, and the rise of a modernist movement that coincided with the Independence of India, and has progressed into a contemporary art movement that reflects today's emerging India within the global perspective.

Partnering with SaffronArt in this venture is Pundole Art Gallery, a gallery specializing in modern and contemporary Indian art. Founded in 1963, the gallery has maintained an exclusive range of artists that includes M.F. Husain, Sakti Burman and Akbar Padamsee. The exhibit will be curated by Dadiba Pundole who owns and operates the Gallery.
