Kumar Gallery II
110003 New Delhi
IndiEstablished in October 1955, Kumar Gallery stood as a lonely landmark in the Capital's nascent 'art world'. It stood at the beginning of beginning, witnessing and participating in an unprecedented upsurge of artistic creativity that encountered a new socio-economic situation within a decade of Independence. It is almost impossible to mention any early Indian modernist or any important artist of generations that followed-from the 'fifties to the late 'nineties-whom Kumar Gallery has not promoted. And in the process, Virendra Kumar and his brothers got immersed in the amazingly colourful 'happenings' in modern art.
