M F Husain
(1913 - 2011)

Untitled



"I'm merely trying to collate my experience of 60 years through the paintings. Through men, women, plants and birds...I'm not narrating any story...I'm not concerned with certain types here; instead I'm aspiring to convey my vision to speak...I didn't sit down, brood that I have to do this theme or that. If you become overly conscious about what you're doing, then artificiality, a fake-ness creeps in." - M F HUSAIN
