About the book: Beautiful and brilliant, Amrita Sher-Gil lived life on her own terms, scandalizing the staid society of her times with her love affairs and unconventional ways. In this fascinating biography, art historian Yashodhara Dalmia paints a compelling portrait of the artist who, when she died in 1941 at the age of twenty-eight, left behind a body of work that establishes her as one of the foremost artists of the century and an eloquent symbol of the fusion between the East and the West
About the book: Ravi Varma (1848-1906) was one of the first Indian painters to successfully adopt Western painting techniques and adapt academic realism to the visual interpretation of Indian mythology. His genre of paintings, which eventually lead to chromolithographs (oleographs), has maintained a lasting effect on the Indian sensibility, making him the best-known classical painter of the modern era. This book is an account of Ravi Varma's traditional background and environment and how they related to the modernisation of colonial India, as well as his profession as an aristocratic itinerant painter. Lavishly illustrated with images taken from princely and private collections, and museums, the book includes works that have never been seen before: previously undisclosed maps, letters, photographs and other archival material. A unique feature of this title is that it comes to the customer with a choice of two splendid dust jackets. Customers should indicate their choice of cover [Male/Female] at the time of placing the order.
