> DESCRIPTION

Celebrating the 100th birth anniversary of the great Indian painter

”It always surprises me to hear that those who can recognise the good in Western art are unable to do so as regards Eastern art. To me it seems incredible. But perhaps this is due to my double atavism.....” thus spoke Amrita Sher-Gil (1913-1941), the Indo-Hungarian woman artist and legendary icon of modern Indian art. To mark her centenary the exhibition highlights one side of Amrita’s ancestry  – the Magyar connection; documenting with rich material taken from the Sher-Gil family archive, the autobiographical, cultural, historic   al and social Hungarian context that formed and influenced her personality and work.
