Thence by descent 


George Butcher was a prominent British art critic for The Guardian and a stalwart supporter of the burgeoning Indian and South Asian modern art scene. He spent more than two years in India and befriended many artists, gallerists and art critics. Using his knowledge and contacts, he curated several shows on South Asian art featuring artists from both home and abroad. Butcher was one of the first writers to assert the unique and remarkable contribution of South Asian artists to a global form of modernism and he has left an indelible mark on the history and canon of modern Indian and South Asian art.
