The Yellow Room, New Delhi

On display for the first time in India, Delteil’s artworks — that were made when she was quite young — depict her innermost thoughts on paper, and are characterised by their use of vibrant colours and female figures in most of the works. “I might have thought unconsciously that ladies have to find alone their place in the society, without the guidance of anyone. So unconsciously the work I was doing at that time mostly of single women in their own thoughts,” says the artist, married to Indian painter Sakti Burman, about her creations.
