Amrita Sher Gil (A Painted Life)
Description
About the Book:

Today Amrita Sher Gil is an icon of modern Indian art. In her tragically short life, she blazed across the Indian art scene and challenged the landscape of the Indian imagination.

For Amrita Sher Gil, every aspect of life had to be experienced with a passionate intensity. Often shocking conservative Indian society, her life was as flamboyant and romantic as her paintings. Using a devastating array of weapons - intelligence, wit, warmth and the unforgettable aura of beauty, she celebrated the arrival of the individual.

After a formal western art education, she turned to the classical arts of India for inspiration and her paintings are vibrant with the rich colours of the Indian landscape and the eternal faces of its people.

CONTENTS

CHAPTER ONE
A Sensualist of the Eye

CHAPTER TWO
Hungarian Rhapsody

CHAPTER THREE
The Parisian Interlude

CHAPTER FOUR
Brightness at Noon

CHAPTER FIVE
Touching the Skies

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
