A VERY MUCH VENERATED INDIAN PAINTER LIVING IN EXILE DIES IN LONDON

M.F. Hussein, age 95, passed away in London. He is probably India’s most highly priced artist. He started out as a poster artist for Bollywood movies. He painted large colorful canvases with Hindu mythological  folktale subjects and animals  and  most importantly, women, as the giver of love and life. It was the painting of a nude Hindu woman that brought him into conflict with his country’s legal system and although he was exonerated, he decided to live in Dubai. He had broken  with traditional Indian painting style  many decades ago  and is now  often called  the Picasso of India.
