M.F. Husain

M.F. Husain the master of modern Indian paining and whose place in art history is unquestionable. Husain was largely instrumental in making a market for Indian contemporary art in the global art scene.

As you see more of Husain's work you learn that the style he developed is the figurative floats and each one of them has a story to tell. His work is poetic and the stories in them are epic narrations and a collage of story boards which you want to discover as you stand there mesmerized by his work.

One of the oldest forms of print-making, serigraphy or silk-screen painting, involves creating a separate screen for each colour, in this case 26 individual colours. Each silk screen is precisely placed over the serigraph paper, and then by hand squeegee paint for a specific colour is applied. It can take a serographer up to six months to produce a run of the same image. They are costly to produce and as close to the actual original painting as you can possibly get.

A print is for people with more taste than money.”—M. F. Husain.
