This picture is by Amrita Sher-Gil, painted in 1935 it can be seen in the National Gallery of Modern Art in Deli. Amrita said, "I realised my real artistic mission, to interpret the life of Indians and particularly the poor Indians pictorially; to paint those silent images of infinite submission and patience,... to reproduce on canvas the impression those sad eyes created on me."
