Portrait of Kekoo and Khorshed Gandhy on their wedding day 1944
I just fell in love with this portrait. This Parsi couple founded Gallery Chemould Mumbai.
Gallery Chemould, founded in 1963 by late Kekoo and Khorshed Gandhy, was one of the oldest established commercial art galleries. The Gandhys began their long association with contemporary art during the late 1940s, in the early years of the modernist art movement in post-Independence India. Their role and involvement as facilitators and promoters in this cultural climate has come to be seen as integral to the existing scene around the visual arts in the country.
