More about Lalitha Lajmi

Painter Lalitha Lajmi, who was born in Calcutta in 1930, also had a strong interest in classical dancing. She got married to Captain Gopi Lajmi and later had a daughter named Kalpana Lajmi. Her first exhibition was the group exhibition at Jehangir Art Gallery in Mumbai, where, in 1961, she also held her first solo exhibition.

Today, The British Museum, the CSMVS Museum in India, and the National Gallery of Modern Art all have collections of her artwork. The inspiration for Lajmi’s earlier works came from her own experiences and observations, whilst the concealed tension between men and women was mirrored in her later works.
