More on M F Husain – the great artist

I wrote about M F Husain’s persecution at the hands of extremists here. Parvaiz Alvi sent me images of his works that were most representative of his early style. Ethereal lines and hues transform the canvas.

Just read today that Sotheby will showcase some of his works (among other Indian artists). Loved this quote :

“I am a creative person and feel that there is no end to creativity. Only 10 per cent of what is inside me has found an expression. Even 10 lives will not be enough for me..”

What a shame that a living genius is suffering at the hands of bigots and the aesthetically challenged!
