Women and Art : when i think of these two words together i think of Frida Kahlo, Camille Claudel…
I think of so many significant Indian women artists and their contribution to Art. From Anjolie Ela Memon to Bharti Kher women artists definitely are making their presence felt but by and large the no of women in the field is small as compared to men. A show highlighting their work therefore is welcome.
