National Gallery of Modern art, Mumbai - 67

Guys, this Gallery plays master of ceremonies to the work of leading Indian Artists. The National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA) was demonstrated in 1954 by the Government of India, with a gallery in New Delhi. Its collection of more than 14,000 works includes artists such as Thomas Daniell, Abanindranath Tagore, Rabindranath Tagore, Gaganendranath Tagore, Nandalal Bose, Jamini Roy, Amrita Sher-Gil as well as foreign artists.

NGMA Mumbai was opened to the public in 1996. It hosts various exhibitions and art collections of big-name artists, sculptors and refinements. It is settled near Regal Cinema in Colaba. 

Displays include:

- A collection of Pablo Picasso's works
- Egyptian artefacts such as mummies, statues, etc.


Apart from its traditional art schools, India also has a contemporary art lineage that began in the early fifties. While pioneers like MF Hussain and FN Souza spearheaded this modern art movement, Mumbai was the place of origin of these courageous new aesthetes.
