A women who inspired a lot many female artists to have a faith in their own thought was Amrita Shergil. She paved the way of difference. She died at very young age but left us with a treat of work to eye upon and pounder about. She believed in the fact that an artwork no matter how wonderfully copied would always be inferior to original. The process of art is imagination and if we merely copy then we just limit our thought process. Her works talk about the life and event in a women’s book.
The ‘Bride’s toilet’ , a work that talks about a wedding ritual, where the women is getting ready for her marriage. The colors used are vibrant and gay, the forms are static grave, they have a stillness about them.
‘Hill women’ an artwork where the faces of the women are grave, she focused the poor people in India. She was attracted to the elements of sadness melancholy in their thoughts that reflects on their faces. A typical style was created with triangular static faces, brooding deep eyes and seems as though withdrawn mentally.
In the work ‘Brahmacharis’ where she tells the tale of said life of boys who are forced to follow an austere life.
While she was aboard she use to paint women nude, lost in weary forests, wandering into unknown places. While in India her idealization changes where she concentrated on a deeper level of thinking. She drove a supervising sense of vitality and newness.
