The house is like a museum celebrating the life of Tyeb Mehta, one of contemporary India’s greatest painters.
One afternoon The Delhi Walla entered the home of Sakina Mehta, the late artist’s wife. Ms Mehta lives with her daughter, Himani, and her son-in-law, Vaseem, in South Delhi’s Greater Kailash Enclave Part-I. Every wall in the apartment is adorned with at least one work by her husband. Ms Mehta guided me to select parts of the house.
