V. S. Gaitonde's return to New York

The Indian modernist painter V.S. Gaitonde (1924–2001) is not very well known in the US. Though he travelled to New York in the 1964 and was aware of Abstract Expressionism, his roots were always in India. By the end of the 1960s, when he was back in Delhi, he became a mentor to a number of younger Indian abstract painters. On 24 October, the Guggenheim Museum in New York opens “V. S. Gaitonde: Painting as Process, Painting as Life,” a retrospective of the artist’s work, introducing his art to a new generation of Americans.
