ABSTRACT
The author comments on the article "Decentering Modernism: Art History and Avant-Garde Art from the Periphery," by Partha Mitter. In the article, the author says that Mitter makes clear that modern and contemporary art in South Asia can no longer be ignored in the understanding of the landscape of global art in the 20th century. The author emphasizes the need to study art within its local, regional and national contexts, and the ways in which this art engages with the art of Europe and North America must be acknowledged.
