The serenity of nature and the chaotic beauty of cityscapes are the subject of Mrs. Amrit Dayal Mathur’s paintings. The artist saw herself as a fond observer and documenter of the world. Her portraits are vivid, bright and seem to bring each individual’s story alive on canvas.
Working with both oils on canvas and watercolours, Mrs Dayal-Mathur (1931-2000) learnt her craft from the Govt College of Art, Kolkata and worked in the Dilip Dasgupta studio. She hosted multiple exhibitions in her time from AIFACS to Lalit Kala and Triveni.
