Google pays tribute to painter Amrita Sher-Gil on 103rd birth anniversary

Google has paid tribute to modernist painter Amrita Sher-Gil with a doodle on her 103rd birth anniversary today. The internet giant posted a depiction of her famed painting 'Three Girls' created by Jennifer Hom, on its home page.

"Vivid color, graceful forms, and bold strokes mark the remarkable life and work of Indian painter described as the 'Indian Frida Kahlo'", Google says about her works, which have been declared as National Treasures in India.

Sher-Gil was born in 1913 to a Sikh father and Hungarian mother in Budapest and is considered among the most important Indian painters of the 20th century.

The National Gallery of Modern Art holds a total of 95 of the 174 documented works she created over the course of her brief career. Sher-Gil died on December 5, 1941.
