    A large number of India's best known artists have been self taught. Yet the importance of art schools cannot be ignored. In fact many of the art schools have also been at the centre of major art movements from time to time. From the time of its inception, Santiniketan has been at the centre of India's avant-garde movements. In the early 20th century and particularly in the post-independence era, another important centre of avant-garde art came into prominence: the Government College of Art in Kolkata. The JJ School of Art in Mumbai came into prominence in the post-independence era are produced stalwarts of Indian art. Another Art School of great repute is the art school at the MS University of Baroda. Beyond Kolkata, Mumbai, and Baroda, there are other centres of art too which have gained in prominence in recent years. In the post liberalization phase of Indian art, many art colleges and institutes have come into prominence in Delhi, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Lucknow. This current exhibition displays paintings of artists categorized by the art school where they received their art education.
