M.F. Husain, Traditional Indian Festivals, 2008-2011
The last nine paintings that MF Husain made will be displayed at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) at a month-long show starting May 28. These are a series on India, the variety of its culture and civilisation that the acclaimed artist had been commissioned to paint by Laxmi Mittal in 2008 and had been working on until his death in 2011. The Mittals have loaned the works to the V&A, where Husain completed a residency in 1990.
