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

CHAPTER FOUR

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
