Art Sunday #145: Amrita Sher-Gil – Village Scene


Village-scene-1938

Amrita Sher-Gil (Punjabi: 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. Drawn to painting at a young age, Sher-Gil started getting formal lessons in the art, at the age of eight. Sher-Gil first gained recognition at the age of 19, for her oil painting entitled Young Girls (1932).

Sher-Gil traveled throughout her life to countries including Turkey, France, and India, deriving heavily from their art styles and cultures. Sher-Gil is considered an important woman painter of 20th-century India, whose legacy stands on a level with that of the pioneers of Bengal Renaissance. 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.

Five for Friday (Fem för fredag)


i-PSKBW7b-X2

So it’s that time of week once again where I fight with my brain to keep from being assimilated into the Borg collective.  Let’s see …

1. I’m really disappointed in yesterday’s email about a business opportunity.  Here I was ready to take advantage of it and take a companion on a world tour only to find out that my responding email was rejected.  Ugh!  Someone beat me to this and I’m left to fend for myself.  Rats!  I bet it was someone with shifty eyes and a untrusting nature who got there before me.

2. It’s another beautiful day in central Minnesota and I’m loving it.  Back to our regular programming come next week tho.  Ugh!

3. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to get this posted.  I have been one busy cat with work this morning.  I need a vacation soon.

4. I got my little ghost guy out of storage along with a couple other light up thingees.  We’ll get them all set up over the weekend.  I really like Halloween.  Too bad the weather gets so nasty around this neck of the Hundred Acre Wood after Halloween.

5. I have to get some pics sometime today of my Burning Bushes.  They are a brilliant crimson and the sun washed out their brilliance in some pics this morning.

OK.  That does it for this week.  Feel free to comment or wave a friendly “Howdy Do!” while on your way thru if’n you want.   🙂
