#DearNonNatives: Don’t call yourself a feminist if you’re going to ignore the missing and murdered Indigenous women in this country, or the 1 in 3 Native women who were sexually assaulted, or the white washed and hypersexualized images of Native women in the media.

Sometimes old posts get new life and the reemergence of this one reminded me that I have a stash of Ye Qianyu paintings. The artist often has a series of paintings of the same gesture but the colours vary giving a wide range of combinations for the simple bordered sarees that he tends to favour. Apart from this there are varying styles - printed blouses, ruffle sarees, ghaghra choli ensembles etc. And the showcasing of hair ornaments and alta on hands and feet.

“Amrita Sher-Gil (Punjabi: ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤਾ ਸ਼ੇਰਗਿੱਲ; 30 January 1913 – 5 December 1941) was an eminent Indian painter. She has been called “one of the greatest avant-garde women artists of the early 20th century” and a “pioneer” in modern Indian art. Drawn to painting at a young age, Sher-Gil started getting formal lessons in the art, at the age of eight. Sher-Gil first gained recognition at the age of 19, for her oil painting entitled Young Girls (1932).

Sher-Gil traveled throughout her life, to countries including Europe, Turkey, France and India, deriving heavily from their art styles and cultures. Sher-Gil is considered an important woman painter of 20th-century India, whose legacy stands on a par with that of the pioneers of Bengal Renaissance.She was also an avid reader and a pianist.” (x)
