Can anyone recommend me a good museum/gallery in Kolkata that displays a comprehensive overview of contemporary (20th century) art from across India?

Iím flying into Kolkata on 16th December and only there for 3 days before heading south. In this time Iím hoping to get to a good (albeit brief) introduction to Indian modern art.

Much appreciated!

It's all Greek to me, but Benglish will do

For Contemporary Art I would definitely recommend these three places:
CIMA http://www.cimaartindia.com/
Bose Pacia http://http://www.bosepacia.com/
Galerie 88 http://www.galerie88.in/
My husband is an artist and we always try to hit the art galleries while in India. Art galleries seem to be mushrooming everywhere in India (even Kolkata) these days. The three I mentioned above have really high standards (Bose Pacia is an established gallery in New York City)
