The vocabulary of art in search of abstract modernism in India has a profound trail which became volatile post independence. The legendary artists V.S. Gaitonde, Shankar Palshikar, D.G.Kulkarni and K.K. Hebbar were extensively experimenting with forms and colours to bring the purity on the canvas. A new wave of art was taking shape with another group of artists like Raza, Souza and Hussain which enveloped many young artists. A significant work series of these artists brings in the modern history of India at National Gallery of Modern Art, Mumbai. The trail was now a multi fold path around 70s and 80s which included artists like Prafulla Dahanukar, Prabhakar Barwe, Laxman Shreshta, Jehangir Sabawala, Gieve Patel and Tyeb Mehta.

The sincere efforts and practise by these artists influenced many young artists of the next generations. The NGMA-Mumbai has collection of various art works in diverse mediums and styles.
