‘Masterpieces from the National Museum collection’
The National Museum was established in 1949, in the premises of Rashtrapati Bhawan, New Delhi, and
later shifted to the present building, in 1960.
Initially, it had a very small collection of about 1000 works of art, most of which had just returned from the exhibition sent to Royal Academy, London in the winter of 1947.
Now the collection of the Museum consists of about 1,50,000 works of art, both of Indian and foreign origin, representing almost all disciplines of art: archaeology, sculpture, paintings.
epigraphy, numismatics, decorative arts, jewellery textiles and anthropology
Out of this vast collection, only 368 art objects have been chosen for this exhibition.
This selection was conditioned by the limitation of space and many technical considerations, such as extraordinary security precautions and the capacity of the first floor exhibition gallery to bear the load of heavy sculptures, etc.
Nevertheless, every possible attempt has been made to select some of the finest examples covering different areas of our collection.
