In 1948 Husain and Souza visited the India Independence Exhibition, this inspired the shift away from depicting the Street life of Bombay as radical Progressives to looking to Indian civilisation as inspiration. Classical Indian Art was looked down upon by society as the time. They challenged that and asserted that this tradition was as good if not better than the Western One. Souza wrote in the Illustrated weekly of India in July 1960 “Those mighty temples and pillars and many a carved figure of girls wearing nothing but smiles more enigmatic than even Mona Lisa could manage.”

Maqbool Fida Husain (1915 - 2011) was a modern Indian painter of international acclaim, and a founding member of The Progressive Artists Group of Bombay (PAG). M F Husain was associated with Indian modernism in the 1940s.    Husain began his career by painting billboards for feature films. Hussain's —sometimes treated in series—include topics as diverse as Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Ramayana, Mahabharata, British Raj, Bollywood, horses and motifs of Indian urban and rural life.   M. F. Husain’s name has become almost synonymous with modern Indian art, for no single artist has popularised Indian art. M F Husain was a special invitee along with Pablo Picasso at the Sao Paulo Biennial (Brazil) in 1971.
