For almost a century now, Indian artists have been drawn to Paris to study the masters, to mix with the modernists, to sip coffee and engage with its intellectuals in its cafes, to study the Impressionists and Cubists who were responsible, in great part, for the spread of modernism that cut across histories and geographies. Now, for the first time, a major exhibition lays claim to this heritage with a sweeping view of the artists who have been part of this incredible journey. The exhibition, on view to the public at Visual Art Gallery, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi from February 1-11, 2018, traces this history with a curation of important works and creates a segue between two cultures that found a way to overcome the obstacles of history and culture to create an artistic representation that combines the best that India and France have to offer.
