About the artist

Maqbool Fida Husain

Maqbool Fida Husain (Indian, 1915–2011) was one of India’s most prominent Modern artists, and one of the first Indian painters to gain recognition at auction through his record-breaking prices. Born in Pandharpur, Husain was largely self-taught, earning money in his youth by painting movie billboards in Mumbai. He began his career as a Fine Artist in the 1940s, and was invited to join the Progressive Artist’s Group because of his interest in re-inventing conventional academic techniques.
