National Gallery of Modern Art Tours

National Gallery of Modern Art
Located just across the traffic circle from India Gate along Rajpath, the National Gallery of Modern Art was opened in 1954 as a place to feature contemporary Indian art. Housed within the former palace of the maharaja of Jaipur, the museum houses a collection of works by Indian and British artists from 1850 onward.

One of the most fascinating things about visiting the museum is seeing how differently modern art developed in India compared to the United States or Europe. With a collection spanning 150 years, browsing the galleries is akin to a crash course in modern Indian art history. Combine your visit with a stop at the nearby National Museum to complete the picture.

Practical Info

While the museum’s collection is dominated by painting, you’ll also find exhibits on modern sculpture, print making and photography. Don’t miss the collection of colorful paintings by Amrita Sher-Gil and the works of British artist Thomas Daniell.
