About

Painting Freedom: Indian Modernism and its Three Rebels

Painting Freedom documents the emergence of Indian modern art between 1870 and 1950.

The largest exhibition ever held in the United Kingdom of artworks from this defining period of modern Indian art. With over 100 rarely seen works, including items displayed for the first time from private collections, and important loans from the British Museum, this is a must see exhibition.

Painting Freedom takes the viewer on a journey covering Early Bengal Oils, Kalighat paintings, and the Bengal School, before presenting an extensive coverage of the three rebels who helped define this quest for cultural independence: Hemen Mazumdar, Jamini Roy and Rabindranath Tagore.

Please note that (free) timed tickets are required to visit Leicester Museum & Art Gallery. Please visit the museum website to book.
