About Amrita Sher-Gil
Amrita Sher-Gil was a Hungarian-Indian Painter who was born on 30th January 1912 at Budapest, Hungary. She took interest in painting at a very small age and began getting her formal lessons at the age of eight years at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Her style of work was acclaimed all over the world for her stunning canvas abilities to portray the day-to-day lives of Indian women in the 19th and 20th century. The paintings of Amrita Sher Gil talked about ladies walking to the market, girls attending a wedding, housewives at home and many other simple life activities that resonated with a common man. Occasionally she revealed women bonding with other women. Due to her distinctive style and her emphasis on girls, Sher-Gil was also known as the”Indian Frida Kahlo.” Her paintings are on display in the National Gallery of Modern Art.
