‘Because we cannot paint in the West as we paint in the East – the colour of the white man is different from the colour of the Hindu and the sunshine changes the light. The white man’s shadow is bluish-purple while the Hindu has golden-green shadow. Mine is yellow. Van Gogh was told that yellow is the favourite colour of the Gods and that is right.’

– Amrita Sher-Gil, read in Amrita Sher-Gil A Life by Yashodhara Dalmia
