Art from the 1850s at National Gallery of Modern Art
The National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA) showcases modern and contemporary pieces from the 1850s to the present. Because it is a less frequented spot on the tourist circuit, it almost feels like a private gallery. NGMA was formally inaugurated in 1954, and the first curator was renowned German art historian Herman Goetz. In addition to traditional paintings, the gallery features miniature paintings, sculptures, photography, and prints from artists that include Raja Ravi Varma and Abanindranath Tagore. Stop by the library for a noteworthy collection of periodicals.
Note: Closed on Mondays.
