A Private Art

review of a show of Indian art in the Guardian makes an important point. India does not have a tradition of museums, never mind public art galleries. Most art is still in private hands, and, apparently, there’s lots of it, almost all never seen in the west or reproduced. The current growing interest in Indian art might provide preconditions to change that, but only if Indians embrace the idea of the museum. I look forward to great changes in our understanding of the history of what must be one of the richest traditions in the world. I’m sure there will be some lessons for abstraction there.
