Art has a subtle way of impacting and shaping our lives. Indian paintings have piqued the interest of collectors across the globe. For many centuries, traditional forms of art have been able to define its people’s culture in all facets of life and they date back to 2500 BC. However, up until the 1950s, Indian artworks didn’t gain much prominence. Works by eminent artists, like M. F. Hussain, S. H. Raza, Thota Vaikunthum, Amrita Sher-Gil have put us on the map and drastically changed the way Indian paintings have been perceived globally.

There has been an upsurging demand for modern Indian paintings. The Sub-continent’s cultural nuances, history, religions, and philosophies are richly embedded into the artwork.

However, there has also been a radical shift in forms of expression. Many master artists have also embraced western styles like Cubism, Expressionism, Impressionism into their artwork.
