Epic India: Paintings by M. F. Husain

On view November 4, 2006

Located in the: Online Interactive

Artistic expression has long been contested terrain. Husain, who is a Muslim, has generated criticism from some quarters because of the manner in which he has portrayed Hindu gods and goddesses. Husain has always asserted the influence of Indian art styles on his work and he continues to be inspired by a wide range of Indian themes. In his quest for new modes of artistic expression, the artist has found transcendent imagery, compelling visions, and universal significance in the Mahabharata.
