Amrita Sher-Gil


Amrita Sher-Gil was an Indian-Hungarian artist who revitalized Indian art in the early 20th century by adapting Western modernist styles to Indian artistic traditions and subjects. She is considered one of the founders of modern Indian art, and her influence persists in the artistic style of later Indian artists and in the shift in Indian art towards the feminine, corporeal, and rural subject, as well as her role in paving the way for later female artists.
