https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/91/Amrita_Sher-Gil_2.jpgAmrita Sher-Gil (30 January 1913 – 5 December 1941) was an eminent Hungarian-Indian painter. She has been called "one of the greatest avant-garde women artists of the early 20th century" and a "pioneer" in modern Indian art.[1] Drawn towards painting since a young age, Sher-Gil started getting formal lessons in the art, at the age of eight. She first gained recognition at the age of 19, for her oil painting titled- Young Girls (1932).

Sher-Gil traveled throughout her life to various countries including Turkey, France, and India, deriving heavily from their art styles and cultures. Sher-Gil is considered an important painter of 20th-century India, whose legacy stands on a level with that of the pioneers from the Bengal Renaissance.[2][3] She was also an avid reader and a pianist. Sher-Gil's paintings are among the most expensive by Indian women painters today, although few acknowledged her work when she was alive.[4][5] Her letters reveal same-sex affairs.[6]
