An Artist of Her Time: Y. G. Srimati and the Indian Style

This is first retrospective exhibition devoted to the Indian artist Y. G. Srimati (1926–2007). Raised in the heated climate of the independence movement—she performed devotional songs for Mahatma Gandhi—Srimati explored themes from Indian religious epic literature and visions of rural culture, asserting traditional subject matter as part of a conscious expression of nationalist sentiments.

Art Exhibition previously on at Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, United States.
From Thursday 15 December 2016 to Sunday 18 June 2017
