Sovereign presents ‘Pioneers of Indian Modernism'

Dubai's newest new art gallery, Sovereign, has opened its doors with ‘Pioneers of Indian Modernism' featuring prominent works by India's most prestigious artists - MF Husain, VS Gaitonde, SH Raza, Tyeb Mehta, Ram Kumar, and Akbar Padamsee. The exhibition will run until 30 June, allowing art aficionados in the UAE to view some of the world's finest examples of Modern Indian art.

Pioneers of Indian Modernism is curated by veteran gallery owner and art dealer Dadiba Pundole, who has curated and consulted for several international institutions, among them Glenberra Art Museum - Japan, India's National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA) - India, and international auction house - Sotheby's. Dadiba Pundole explains that the carefully curated exhibition is an ode to the formation of the Progressive Artists Group (PAG) in 1947, in India. “This exhibition is woven around this short lived but significant movement - a catalyst for the acceptance of Modern Art in India. Besides Husain and Raza who were members of the PAG, Gaitonde, Tyeb and Padamsee shared a similar ideology.

“Together, they are the most important painters in modern India's history and they have made impactful contributions to the world of art; this is our tribute to the pioneers.” The six stunning artworks are currently available for sale, with keen buyer interest from international museums commencing months before the exhibition. As befit the impact and importance of these paintings in the global art market, prices range between US$ 350,000 and US$ 2.7 million.

Sovereign is located at The Palladium in Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Dubai, and is open to public from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm, and 4.00 pm to 7.00 pm - every day except Friday. Tel: 04 4322846, Email:, Website:
