Grosvenor Gallery specialises in Indian and Pakistani Modernist artists of the period 1947 to the present. The Gallery was founded in 1960 by the American Eric Estorick who dealt primarily in Russian Constructivism and Italian Futurism, the Estorick Foundation in Islington, London, houses his collection of Italian Futurists.
Since 2000 the current Directors and owners Conor Macklin and Charles Moore have focused on the Indian and Pakistani Modernists, primarily F.N. Souza (1924-2002) whose estate is represented by the gallery, M.F. Husain (1913-2011), and S.H. Raza (1922-2016) with whom we have extensively collaborated and exhibited, as well Pakistani artists Syed Sadequain (1930-1987) and A.R. Chughtai (1897-1975). We also exhibit one of the few living artists of this generation Krishen Khanna (b.1925), and have a Contemporary programme, exhibiting young artists from South Asia and some more established such as Rasheed Araeen
The gallery works closely with all the major collectors of the region as well as the curators and museums with an interest in this area, including recent shows at Tate Britain All Too Human, and The Progressive Revolution at the Asia Society in New York.
