The Self in Making - Amrita Sher-Gil (2014)

The Self in Making - Amrita Sher-Gil (2014)

The Self in Making, Amrita Sher-Gil delineates the way her maturity was tied up with deep self-awareness of her artistic persona as well as her identity as a 'modern woman'. Through the rich selection of images chosen from her trajectory of practice, a glimpse is offered into how this self-realization stimulated her several self-portraits since the age of fourteen.

The publication illustrates the ease with which she slipped into a traditional garb from a modern one, or switched roles which were different from the ones she was used to, giving a clue to the way her personal life influenced her creations. The curatorial note by Roobina Karode and the extensive essay by Rakhee Balram expound how in her self-portraits, she fused together varied moods and moments with a masterly skill and imbued them with meaning.
