    The visual culture museum in the West Kowloon Cultural District bought the painting SS Rajputana Leaving the Port of Bombay – 29th August 1931 by Atul Dodiya. The purchase was made from the HK$5 million fund established by philanthropist and artist Rosamund Brown. The fund, now in its second year, is split over two, five-year spans to allow M+ to acquire work at Art Basel for the collection. M+, which is dedicated to visual culture from the last century and today, has more than 4,000 works and is due for completion in 2018.

    M+ chief curator Doryan Chong said the museum was thrilled to acquire the Atul Dodiya piece. “We have been gradually expanding our purview to include South and Southeast Asia. Dodiya is a perfect addition,” he says.
