The Modern Indian Art. Painting Trajectories exhibition is the attempt to present the basic tendencies of development of the Indian art from 1850. The exposition begins with the landscapes, stage portraits of the British period of the Indian art and unknown Indian painters of the XIX century. Much attention is given to the interest of  the Indian painters in the “Bengal school”, renaissance of the history of the national art and “Svadeshi”. Large part of the exhibition is devoted to the Rabindranat Tagor school and to the painters, that are connected with his teaching  about the dissolution in the landscape and applied role of art in different aspects of the every-day life. The exhibition finishes with the Indian art of the last third of the XX century and beginning of the XXI century, that combines the abstract painting language with the interest in the national history and mythology.
