Portrait of an Artist
A biography of Hungarian-Indian artist Amrita Sher-Gil written by Anita Vachharajani and illustrated by Kalyani Ganapathy written for children and young adults. It is written simply, but with class, keeping the target audience in mind and beautifully illustrated in colour. It also includes a large number of stunning colour prints of Amrita Sher-Gil’s work. At 181 pages, it is an eye-opening read about one of India’s pioneering artists. Because of the intended audience, the book also leaves out some of the more colourful parts of the artist’s life. Overall, great read! Buy it as a gift for children you know or for yourselves. Highly recommended!
