This book is a graphic illustrated biography laid out in a very interesting and bewitching manner. While narrating her life story beginning with how her parents met (an Indian Sikh father and a Hungarian pianist mother), the story is interspersed with historical background of the momentous times she lived in : Two world wars, Indian freedom movement, and major changes in the art world. Photographs, letter extracts, prints of her paintings and illustrations of her life story (done by the talented illustrator Kalyani Ganapathy) blend in a beautiful way to carry the story forward in a gentle, lucid manner.
One of those rare magical books you marvel to have laid your hands on. The author Anita has done extensive research on previous biographies and published works of Amrita's life and art and the result is a beautiful collage. Someday have to visit NGMA in Delhi where much of Amrita's work donated by her family to the nation are exhibited. Till then this book will charm me and I will treasure it for aeons....
The style conversational , research deep and illustrations mesmerising... this book is an absolutely treat !!!
Am hoping for more in the series of India Artists !! Anita and team take a bow !! Kudos !
