As my social media was flooded with Make heritage fun event to be happened on 12 th June, I stressed with the unconditional pressure of my exams, decided to mark my presence for this event going to happen in my city. As I decided to coordinate this event in my city, just a few days ago I came with a idea to visit such a place which will give me vast knowledge in the field of heritage as well as can save me from this scorching heat in New Delhi.
My Sunday morning began with a few striking alarms and ended with a lifetime experience. National Galley Of Modern Art is the premier institution of its kind in India. The gallery is a storehouse of the cultural ethos of the country and showcases the changing art forms through the passage of the last hundred and fifty years.
The art gallery displays a remarkable collection of paintings, from colonial-era landscapes and ‘Company Paintings,’ created by Indian artists to suit their new British rulers, to the primitive-inspired artworks of Nobel Prize–winner Rabindranath Tagore. This art gallery has ampler space to display these paintings with a vivid four-floor distribution of these paintings and scriptures. The place takes your passion for art into whole new dwelling places.
The museum also has a steel pant outside in the garden area as wel as other scriptures too. There are hourly walks happening inside the museum and a guide will take you on a tour to discover the paintings and scriptures, free of cost.
Notwithstanding some gaps and some trivia, The NGMA collection today is unquestionably the most noteworthy collection of modern and contemporary art in the country today.
