Patricia Hilton - @Amardip Ghosh Thanks--I reloaded one image in higher resolution, after I had uploaded some others. Now I cannot figure out how to delete the first two low res images(?) On a second note, the copyright info appears in a bad spot on a couple of my images. I'm sure this is a boilerplate thing, but I recommend lowering this mark as it would be common to have important content in this particular spot. Thanks!
Amardip Ghosh - @Patricia Hilton Thank you too! Smallest side of image should be > 400 px. In terms of file size in bytes, an image file size should not be more than 50MB. However since higher resolution digital files allow larger print sizes, artists and photographers are advised to upload the highest resolution images they have. For good digital prints, smallest side of image should be > 1500 px.
Lisa Morshead - @Amardip Ghosh Thanks so much! This is such a great service for both professional and student artists. I'd also love to be more involved with AAC in any manner in which I can be helpful!
B. Prabha (1933â€“2001) was a major Indian artist who worked mainly in oil, in an instantly recognizable style. She is best known for graceful elongated figures of pensive rural women, with each canvas in a single dominant color. By the time of her death, her work had been shown in over 50 exhibitions, and is in some important collections, including India's National Gallery of Modern Art. Prabha started working at a time when India had few women artists; her inspiration was Amrita Shergil. She was moved by the lives of rural women, and over time, they became the main theme of her work. Before moving to Bombay, she studied at the Nagpur School of Art. She was a graduate of the Sir J. J. School of Art, alma mater to many of India's great contemporary artists. She was married to artist and sculptor B. Vithal, who died in 1992. Prabha came to Bombay as a struggling artist, with little moneyâ€”"Rs2 and 11 paise." She sold some pieces of jewellery to raise funds. She and her artist husband were aided by friends who gave them a place to stay and by others who stored their art-work. Her first exhibition, while she was still a student, set her on the path to success when three of her paintings were acquired by eminent Indian scientist Homi J. Bhabha.
