EN: On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Indian-Hungarian painter Amrita Sher-Gil the Permanent Delegation of Hungary and the Permanent Delegation of India to UNESCO with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Hungary and the Ministry of Culture of India organise an inauguration of exhibition with concert, preceded by a programme of film screenings and discussions.
The full programme of the event ‘REMEMBERING AMRITA SHER-GIL’ is available below.


In her remarkably short, yet intense and inspirational life, Amrita Sher-Gil (1913 – 41) transcended continents and cultures to explore forms of creativity, art and expression that inspired later generations of artists, men and women. She was born in Hungary; her father was Indian, a Sikh scholar and her mother Hungarian. The first part of her life was largely spent in Europe; her formal training in art was at the Grande Chaumiere and the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. From 1934, she lived in India, a return to the land of her paternal forebears. India beckoned her, her roots inspired her. Her exuberant energy and vivacity, on the one hand, and her prodigious and insightful output on the other has made her an icon of the new India that emerged in the twentieth century.
