\’Three Girls \’ by Amrita Shergil:Three girls was painted in 1935 by Amrita Sher-Gil.. It was the first painting after her return from Europe following her art studies in Paris. This painting won her a gold medal from the Bombay Arts Society. A change in her visual language is observed when compared to that of her paintings done inEurope. The influence of Gauguin in the flattened treatment of figures is noteworthy. The use of red becomes predominant in her work thereafter.
