My tribute to Amrita Sher-Gil

Amrita was born in Hungary and she was often referred to as India's Frida Kahlo for aesthetically blending traditional and Western art forms, Amrita Sher-Gil was one of the most famous painters of India. She is also considered as a revolutionary woman artist and the originator of modern art in India. Initially inspired by Paul Cézanne and Paul Gauguin she developed her style and though her artworks mainly depicted Western style and culture during the initial stages of her career, the painter gradually began to rediscover herself by depicting Indian subjects using traditional methods.

She even wrote to one of her friends, saying that Europe belonged to the likes of Picasso and Matisse while India belongs to her. 

Sadly she died at the age of 28, though the real reason for her death was never ascertained, it was said that a failed abortion could have caused her demise.
