The Amrita Sher-Gil Post

There are so many wonderful Amrita Sher-Gil photographs (and paintings) around that she deserves a tumblr of her own.

The ones I am posting today have been around for a bit but I felt like posting some 1930s fashion. I am still a little surprised that brocade, satin and chiffon were so popular in the 20s/30s.

Long write ups on Amrita here and here, I am not sure how accurate the details are.
