"The Cage" is a valuable painting by M F Husain from his popular "The Cage" series created in the 1970s. The juxtaposition of the dull background against the bright cubist planes of colour of the two seated women, jar the viewer into understanding their reality. One figure cowers towards the other, with no room for escape, both literally and metaphorically. They are caged by the ‘social and psychological roles’ of Indian society.


The women in this series are distinguished by a unique visual vocabulary and spatial manipulation of the canvas. Rather than paint them in an obviously confined space, he has used multiple, fractured planes to convey a sense of oppression and restriction.

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. When he took up painting as an art form, he returned time and again to his roots, and to themes that blended folk, tribal and mythological art to create vibrantly contemporary, living art forms. His themes—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.   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.
