South Asian Modernists 1953-63 explores the works of Pakistani and Indian artist who worked with Victor Musgrave between 1953-63. Musgrave ran the experimental Gallery One space where South Asia’s most eminent modernist artists were exhibited. Amongst the most important exhibitions held was Seven Indian Painters in Europe (1958), which received critical acclaim and introduced Indian artists to the British market. Drawing on works from the 1953-63 period, these modernist paintings are shown alongside photographs by the renowned photographer Ida Kar, capturing the creative atmosphere of the age.
