Expressions and Evocations: Contemporary Women Artists of India
'Written by some of India's best-known critics and scholars of contemporary art, the articles trace the presence of women on the Indian art scene from the early initiative of Amrita Sher-Gil in the 1930s to the artists of the 1990s. The fifteen painters, sculptors, and graphic artists featured here have been instrumental in carving out a "feminine space" in Indian art. They reflect the historical impulses of each decade: of nationalism and independence, the thrust towards modernism and feminism, and the questioning of the role of women in Indian myth and social archetypes.' (Excerpt from front flap)
Over 130 illustrations accompany the essays. Brief biographies of the critics included.
