Delhi Culture: National Gallery of Modern Art

This is one of the most famous museums in Delhi. The National Gallery of Modern Art is located right in the heart of the city, very difficult to miss. Located just next to India Gate, it is actually located on the traffic hexagon that sorrounds the India Gate complex, and the actual physical location is called Jaipur House. It is open from 10.00 AM to 5 PM on all days, except Monday when it is closed.
The Gallery is run by the Government of India, and was setup in 1954, making it a long standing structure, and enough time to develop a good reputation. The agenda of the Gallery is to preserve and display Indian art from the 1850's.
In addition to works of art, it houses an art reference library which has a vast collection of books. For those looking to carry prints back home, a collection of best contemporary art reproductions are on sale at the counter. Company School paintings of the 19th and early 20th centuries and the works of Rabindranath Tagore, Jammi Roy and Amrita Sher Gil hold pride of place amidst exhibits, which give an overview of the evolution of modern Indian paintings and sculpture.
