Briefly describe the history of the museum, its collection and donors.

Designed by Sir Arthur Bloomfield, as a residence for the Maharaja of Jaipur, the butterfly-shaped building with a central dome was built in 1936 and was converted into the National Gallery of Modern Art in 1954. The collection traces the development of Indian modern art.

The art collection at the NGMA is vast and eclectic, housing 17,000 artworks tracing the development of Indian modern art. Its treasures span from miniature paintings to modernist interventions and au courant contemporary expressions. The exhibition is set chronologically showing works of Tilly Kettle, Thomas Daniell, and Raja Ravi Verma from the early 19th century to the artworks of the progressive group, like those of Anjoli Ela Menon. Artworks by the Tagores, the Bengal school, and Amrita Shergil are attractions in the collection.
