Epic India: Paintings by M.F. Husain
Epic India: Paintings by M.F. Husain brings together works from projects in 1971, 1983, and 1990 revolving around the rich visual imagery of the Mahabharata. At the center of the exhibition are seven major canvases from Husain’s first Mahabharata project, a series of paintings for the 11th Bienal de São Paulo. A set of 11 lithographs produced 12 years later from his watercolors shows Husain revisiting and reworking his imagery for different eyes, according to Bean. A 16-foot canvas from 1990 completes the installation, reconnecting Husain’s early years as a cinema billboard artist where he established his great skill of painting compelling imagery on large, expansive surfaces.
