In assessing the influence of Amrita’s academic training in Paris, on her works executed in India, we find that training to be of small significance. Her purposeful simplification of forms and positive draughtsman ship were achieved, in some measure by her intelligent understanding of the human anatomy. The training at school served as a vehicle of inspiration, but it was the artist’s right thinking that ensured discipline and technical knowledge of the subject. It is said that those who possess vision surmount its pitfalls and those who lack it even confuse competency for an aesthetic truth.
