LONDON — It’s hard to believe that India, with all of its aesthetic richness, architectural gems and embrace of color, could be wanting on the museum front.

There may be soaring landmarks, forts, palaces and historical museums, but there is little that highlights contemporary, pre-modern or folk art, photography, popular culture, or even textiles, crafts or design.

Abhishek Poddar, who hails from an art-loving family, has set out to alter India’s landscape with an unusual proposition in Bengaluru, or Bangalore, the country’s version of Silicon Valley.

He’s the founder of the Museum of Art & Photography, a five-story building that’s under construction and set to open at the end of this year, pending COVID-19-related restrictions.

When it does open, MAP will be south India’s first major private art museum, a 42,000-square-foot space that wants to encourage people to experience contemporary art, and Indian heritage, in new ways.

Etched into the paint of one of the most famous paintings in the world, a haunting eight-word sentence has been a mystery to art historians for over a century. In 1904, a Danish art critic peering at Edvard Munch‘s The Scream noticed graffiti along the rolling clouds of the blood-red sunset. The sentence reads, “Can only have been painted by a madman.” The mysterious statement—clearly added sometime after the painting’s debut in 1893—was long thought to be added either by a disgruntled onlooker or perhaps the artist himself.
