Who own India’s First Private Museum of Contemporary Art?

Anupam Poddar and his mother Lekha have assembled a collection of over 7,000 works of art of Indian modern, contemporary and tribal art.

The birth of the Devi Art Foundation signals a sort of turning point in the Indian art scene, in that it opens up a private family trove to the public and is devoted entirely to contemporary art.

“While most collectors in India still ‘buy with their ears,’ ” said Peter Nagy, a transplanted New Yorker who runs the Nature Morte gallery here, “the Poddars have always listened to their hearts and brains and have never been afraid to be independent in their choices.” [from nytimes]
