This exquisite piece belongs to a series of illustrative portraitures of phenomenal women artists.
With deep intense eyes, curious posture and natural elements in vivid red abstract background, this calendar illustration depicts a thoughtful 'new woman.' It tries to capture a kind of melancholic beauty that one usually finds in the subjects of one of the greatest avant-garde women artists of the early 20th century, Amrita Sher-Gil's influential works. It symbolizes royalty, sensitivity and agency of women. It seeks to initiate artistic conversation and depicts the aim of contemporary women artists to put focus on women as subjects of inquiry and agents of their stories.
