Grosvenor Gallery was founded in 1960 by the sociologist and writer Eric Estorick. It’s first premises was on Davies Street and was the largest and best equipped gallery in England at the time. The gallery showed important European artists of the time, some for the first time in London, such as Magritte, Sironi and Chagall.
In 2006, the gallery shifted its focus to specialise in South Asian Modern and Contemporary art, especially the work of mid-20th century Indian modernists such the members of the Bombay Progressive Artits’ Group (FN Souza, MF Husain, SH Raza), as well as AR Chughtai, Ismail Gulgee and Syed Sadequain from Pakistan. Our contemporary programme includes exhibitions of work by Rasheed Araeen, Faiza Butt, Olivia Fraser and Dhruva Mistry, amongst others.
