Akara presents A Portrait of Observations, a show of early works by Amrita Sher-Gil.

The paintings in the show are evidence that Sher-Gil “never hesitated to express her keenness to
learn, to explore and to experiment. She critiqued and praised her own works and wrote about them in great detail in letters to her parents… The female form, as also seen in this exhibition, dominated this period and went on to become a central part of Sher-Gil’s sketches and paintings in her self-portraits as well as in studies and depictions of various scenes. She focused on the form of figures and human relationships, all mainly women,” as Veeranganakumari Solanki writes.
