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.

A Sensualist of the Eye

CHAPTER TWO

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
