"Popular imagination links Baroda's status as a leading city for the visual arts. But the story goes back further in time to Maharaja Sayajirao III's enlightened patronage (1857-1939) when Baroda was known in the global domain of exhibition! What may be viewed as a provincial city, has actually witnessed soem of the most experimental and cosmopolitan institutional framework for the arts."
