About the walk

Having successfully conserved and restored the three-storeyed colonial barracks within the Red Fort, The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has opened them to the public as a museum hub. Drishyakala by DAG, in collaboration with ASI, showcases four historical exhibitions that explore the development of Indian modern art from the 18th century onwards. Each exhibit covers a different time-period or artistic movement, starting with Thomas and William Daniell's colonial landscapes and aquatints, followed by popular prints, portraits, and finally, India’s National Treasure Artists.

In this walk, we will focus on Gallery-1: ‘Navratna: India’s National Treasure Artists’. Curated by Dr Paula Sengupta, the exhibition showcases India’s nine 'national treasure' artistsRaja Ravi Varma, Abanindranath Tagore, Gaganedranath Tagore, Rabindranath Tagore, Nandalal Bose, Jamini Roy, Amrita Sher-Gil, Nicholas Roerich and Sailoz Mookherjea. We will explore the distinctive works undertaken by these nine artists, the common strands that bind them as well as the differences that set them apart from each other. 

We will also attempt to sketch later in the walk, inspired by these master artists.

 

This guided tour is free.
