Get A Glimpse Of Old Delhi at the NGMAView Slideshow
There’s no such thing as too much colonial-era memorabilia. Get your fill at the National Gallery of Modern Art where Dawn Upon Delhi: Rise of a Capital is currently on display. Drawn from the formidable Alkazi Collection of Photography and the archives of the Archaeological Survey of India and the Central Public Works Department, this lovely exhibition of around 250 photographs, engravings, maps and town plans of Delhi is a record of the city in the 19th- and early 20th-century. The most impressive bits of the show are a collection of photographs taken during the coronation durbars of 1877, 1903 and 1911; pictures that document professional communities such as potters, coolies and leather workers; and maps of modern Delhi by architects such as Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker.Tags: Alkazi Collection of Photography, Archaeological Survey of India, Art, Central Public Works Department, Dawn Upon Delhi: Rise of a Capital, Delhi, National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, NGMA, Photography, The National Gallery of Modern Art
