GET YOUR ART FIX AT JEHANGIR ART GALLERY

WORDS AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY KRUTI DALAL

At a time when new galleries are cropping up on every shaded South Bombay street, the cantilevered roof of Jehangir Art Gallery still manages to evoke memories of the bustling 1950s art scene. Established 65 years ago, the gallery counts some of India’s biggest business families and well-known artists amongst its patrons. Four halls spread out across two floors have hosted giants such as Tyeb Mehta, MF Husain, SH Raza and others in their heyday. Walk into the tiled foyer even today and you can find sculpture, modern art, landscapes and portraits under the same roof.
The masterpieces that line the sidewalks outside are often just as fascinating as the exhibitions on the other side of the wall. Budding artists undertake quick caricature sketches and display watercolour panoramas. Some paint deities on parchment while others etch out names on grains of rice. Every time I need my art fix, I head across town to Kala Ghoda. And every time I thank Cowasji Jehangir for the free trip across the art universe.
