NEW YORK: Demand for Indian contemporary art in the US, which had waned during the recession, may be back, going by Delhi Art Gallery – which has India’s largest repository of modern masters and locations in New Delhi and Mumbai – opening a location at the historic Fuller Building in Manhattan, and will inaugurate it with an exhibition India Modern: Narratives from 20th century Indian Art, from March 18 through June 6, 2015.

The exhibition will include rare early works by some of the 42 artists on view, including close to a 100 pieces by India’s most prominent modernists such as F.N. Souza, M.F. Husain, S.H. Raza, Manjit Bawa, S.K. Bakre, Ram Kumar, Akbar Padamsee, Avinash Chandra, and G.R. Santosh.
