Mortimer Chatterjee


Mortimer Chatterjee received his Masters in the History of Indian Art and Architecture from the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. Having moved to India to pursue his interest in art from the Subcontinent, he co-founded Chatterjee & Lal in 2003. Today, based in Mumbai’s Colaba art district, the gallery is an important node in the city’s maturing art scene. Whilst the gallery has always focused on the work of emerging and mid-career artists, more recently programming has included historical material that adds to the corpus of knowledge on twentieth century histories of art and design. Chatterjee has also been responsible for maintaining major private and corporate art collections. In 2010, he co-authored a publication on the art collection of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), along with curating an exhibition of that collection at the National Gallery of Modern Art, Mumbai.
