An Artist of Her Time: Y. G. Srimati and the Indian Style at The Met Fifth Avenue

The Met Fifth Avenue

1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10028

This is first retrospective exhibition devoted to the Indian artist Y. G. Srimati (1926–2007). Raised in the heated climate of the independence movement—she performed devotional songs for Mahatma Gandhi—Srimati explored themes from Indian religious epic literature and visions of rural culture, asserting traditional subject matter as part of a conscious expression of nationalist sentiments. This exhibition, drawn from The Met collection and private collections, features 25 watercolor paintings, augmented by musical instruments, archival photographs, and performance recordings. —The Met
