Indian Modern art period concurs with the dawn of the 20th century. It was the age of freedom and new sensibilities coming to life with the emergence of a revolutionary class of artists. Then masters such as Vasudeo S. Gaitonde, Tyeb Mehta, Maqbool Fida Husain, Sayed Haider Raza, Manjit Bawa, Francis Newton Souza, Amrita Sher-Gil, to name a few, have defined Indian Modern Art as the age of expression. These artists laid the foundation of Modern Indian Art by employing Western sensibilities all the while preserving traditional Indian Art forms. Their school of thought was to “look at the world from an Indian way not the British way.” Though the art form derives inspiration from western influences, they are fundamentally rooted deeply in the “Indianness” of it all.
