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.

Yashodhara Dalmia is an art historian and independent curator based in New Delhi. Her book The Making of Modern Indian Art: The Progressives is regarded as a definitive account of a seminal phase of Indian art.

When the National Gallery of Modern Art opened in Mumbai in December 1996, Dalmia curated the inaugural exhibition titled The Moderns, which featured 200 works by twelve greats of modern Indian art, including Francis Newton Souza, M.F. Husain and Tyeb Mehta. In September 2010, Dalmia curated a major show of contemporary Indian artists titled Indian (Sub)Way at the Grosvenor Vadehra gallery in London. In January 2011, she curated the show Tyeb Mehta:Triumph of Vision in Delhi, which consisted of unseen paintings by the artist, including his magnificent last work. Currently she is involved in a project on South Asian art.
