As an entity it may be much older than Independent Bharat but it has remained as young diverse and vibrant as our country and today Modern and Contemporary India is the new buzzword in the global art mart. Hidden behind the bright colours and bold strokes of the modern Indian Art movement and the Contemporary Art creations is the unstained patronage of passionate collectors Call them patrons or call them connoisseurs but they are rare people who go beyond being merely collectors of art thus making a silent contribution to India's artistic heritage. This first of its kind book is a unique collection of profiles of 25 living and 2 late premier Collectors of Indian Modern and Contemporary Art all over the globe. The legacy of their genius in professional life is well known but their persona sans the glamour and their passion and raison d'etre for collecting enduring masterpieces of legendary modern and contemporary artists is hardly ever explored. Collectively the profiles form the mosaic of the larger story the story of the always evolving and metamorphosing Indian Art and its remarkable patrons. The book highlights the collectors definitive aesthetic vision deep rooted philanthropy support and commitment to Indian art and artists. The book also showcases selected/favourite works of art of each collector a collection which reflects the discerning eye and eclectic tastes of its owners. Rich in anecdote and lavishly illustrated this stupendous book opens a window onto a world of passionate collectors distinguished by a rather charming obsession while introducing to the readers the mysteries of collecting. 333 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 73563
