    This article was made possible because of a collaboration with the Harper’s Bazaar Magazine. For their 9th anniversary issue, we spoke to Mr. Sabyasachi Mukherjee who started his association with CSMVS as an intern in 1990 and rose to the position of its Director; a visionary who turned around the fate of this once-crumbling structure into a museum with a reputation of hosting blockbuster exhibitions;  an inspiring leader who brought his team together like a family, setting many a benchmark for museums in India. The most endearing characteristic of Mr. Mukherjee is his humility, as he claims his role to be of a mere caretaker of a public institution.

    Take a look the Director’s Picks from the incredible CSMVS collection of Sculptures, Miniature Paintings, Bronzes, Armoury, Textiles, Himalayan Art, Modern Indian & European art.
