The Padma Vibhushan winning artist was known for drawing spectacular abstracts, cityscapes and other cubist forms having beautiful perspectives. Many of these will be part of the grand exhibition.  The show will portray artworks made by the Modernist artist over the course of his 5-decade long art journey, from the 1940s to the 1990s. The artworks will purportedly be displayed in such a way that, when seen from the top of the gallery, they will resemble a Raza painting.

The show will comprise guided tours for audiences, organised in English, Hindi and Marathi. Vaishnavi Ramanathan, an expert on art history, has curated the show in association with museum director Ashvin E Rajagopalan.
