A Century of Figuration in Indian Art

"Figuration has been a long, sustained tradition in Indian art, and Sotheby’s 14 March sale of Modern and Contemporary South Asian Art celebrates a century of the Indian artists who adopted the language of international modernism while remaining firmly rooted in the distinct context of India. In this video, discover a spectacular array of artworks that document India's shift from a colonial state to a sovereign nation, and visit the exhibition at Sotheby’s New York galleries on 7–13 March during Asia Week."
