M F Husain’s serigraph is printed in 8 colours. Edition Size 500. Husain was ahead of his time for sure. Every human action or inaction was grist as subject matter. What stood him in good stead was the surety of his fractured line. His line never wavered. It was perfect each and every time. The figures were thus powerfully endowed. M F Husain’s sense of colour is unmatched. He was a master colourist whether he used earth tones or the most striking colours . He was the acclaimed muralist and at times painted directly on the wall to create wall paintings. His early stint as a painter of movie hoardings made him a genius of scale. No wall or canvas was too large as he effortlessly went about his creative pursuitThe colours from M F Husain’s cinema hoardings were now reflected in the art created on canvas. His love for cinema resulted in this series of serigraphs on Madhuri Dixit. Paintings of MF Husain continuously explored his roots. His knowledge of Indian mythology, religions, customs and traditions was unparalleled. . In the 60s and 70’s Husain’s acclaim made him into an icon, a cult figure, known as much for his eccentricities like walking the streets of Bombay barefoot as for his art. At each point in time, when one tried to figure out ‘What would he do next? How much more would his painting go up in value?’ Husain seemed to be miles ahead of everyone, he not only single handedly create a market for himself for the entire artist community. The latter looked on him with admiration born out of respect and looked up to him for inspiration and constant validation.
