Amrita Sher-Gil was always making art—as a little girl in Budapest, as a young woman in Northern India, as an art student in Paris, she filled up notebooks with sketches and drawings—but what kind of artist would she grow up to be? Between Two Worlds: The Art and Life of Amrita Sher-Gil follows Amrita, the daughter of a Hungarian opera singer and an Indian scholar, on her travels from Hungary to India to France and back to India as she discovered her own artistic vision: one that embraced European and Indian culture. Amrita was rebellious, brave, curious, and bold in her short life and in her paintings, and she became an important figure in the 20th century modern art movement.
