M F Husain Paintings

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.

About The Last Supper, 2005
"The Last Supper,2005" is the pivotal feature of "The Lost Continent" series by the great Indian master M F Husain, offers a peak into Husain’s sense of humanity and moral values. It sold for $2 million in 2005 and, at the time, bore the record of the highest sum ever paid for a work of modern art from India. Christ sits by a table, haloed, with a book open before him. His torso is shaped in the form of a dove. The table, roughly cut is lifted at one end by the devil and by an angel at the other. A woman, garbed in robes and wearing a head gear, cups a candle in her palms. She is seen standing by Christ, on his left-hand side; on his right is an elderly bearded man and an imposing frame of an African lady. The fulcrum of this entire scene is an empty bowl at the centre of the table. The bowl signifies famine and the arresting presence of Africa, a region languishing in hunger and starvation, and serves as the artist’s statement on the global politics surrounding food. Husain had also commented at one point that “the empty bowl signifies betrayal”.
