    An art gallery based in Mumbai specialising in modern and contemporary art, Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke was established in Mumbai by the mother-daughter duo of Usha Mirchandani and Ranjana Steinruecke in 2006.

    The gallery emerged out of The Fine Art Resource, an art dealership and consultancy firm which was established by Mirchandani in the mid-1980s in Mumbai. She was joined in the enterprise by her daughter and together they built art collections for international organisations and institutions such as Deutsche Bank, UBS and Unit Trust of India. From 1997 to 2003, Steinruecke ran a gallery in Berlin which organised exhibitions of Indian artists such as Atul Dodiya, Jogen Chowdhury, and Bhupen Khakhar, among other artists. In 2005, the gallery curated and organised the exhibition The Artist Lives and Works at the House of World Cultures, Berlin, which showed the work of ten young contemporary artists from India, Aji VN, Anju Dodiya, Jayashree Chakravarty, Jitish Kallat, NN Rimzon, NS Harsha, Shilpa Gupta and VN Jyothi Basu.

    The gallery moved to Mumbai in 2006 under its present name, Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke. The gallery represents artists working across practices including painting, sculpture and photography. The roster of artists represented by the gallery includes Ratheesh T, Sosa Joseph, Siji Krishnan, Abir Karmakar, CK Rajan, Benitha Perciyal, Gauri Gill, Gieve Patel and Manish Nai. The gallery also participates and exhibits at major art avenues such as the India Art Fair.

    The gallery, located in the Colaba district of Mumbai, is open to the public from Tuesdays to Saturdays.
