About the walk

This art-history walk at the National Gallery of Modern Art gives the walkers an insight into the evolution of modern Indian art. This experience is for those who would not only like to understand art history but have a meaningful dialogue on the role of such institutions in public outreach. 

There is no other public institution that can rival NGMA, Delhi's vast and critically important collection of paintings, sculptures and other visual-art materials. This includes artworks by Abanindranath Tagore, Amrita Sher-Gil, Gaganendranath Tagore and M.F Husain. Housed in a new, state-of-the-art wing, the collection calls for multiple visits to enjoy it fully. Join this walk to develop an eye for modern Indian art. 

This guided tour is free.
