'Maqbool Fida Husain is regarded as the modern celebrity of twentieth century India. It is a distinction he shares with no other artist from the Indian subcontinent. Husain transforms the visible world around him by combining forms from Indian mythology, the pure hues of miniature paintings and folk-art froms with modern western Pop art and the narrative format of cinema paintings. By making his art conform to an international artistic language — and yet endowing it with an 'Indianness' — he creates works that are unmistakably contemporary.' - Sundaram Tagore

This catalogue of M.F. Husain's exhibition at The Fine Art Resource, Berlin includes essays by Sundaram Tagore and Catherine David. With artist biography.
