The Lines of Love
Her name Sneh translates to love and it was this love for art that motivated her to pursue painting despite her family’s disapproval. A National Award winner twice over (1993, 1997), her miniature paintings have been featured in National Geographic and are known for their offbeat subjects, like painting scenes from the poems of great India poets such as Nirala Mahadevivarma, Jai Shankarprasad, and Kabir Das. Her distinctive style has made a traditional art form come alive and she hopes to pass on her artistry to the next generation of artists. We are delighted to have Dr. Gangal's work as part of our collection.
