Catalogue Note

A central motif of Husian's work is Woman, and the artist treats her as an embodiment  of strength and endurance. As Dalmia states, 'Husain's women are monumental in their fortitude and yet humble and ordinary in a duality that Husain expresses effortlessly in his early works.’ (Yashodhara Dalmia, The Making of Modern Indian Art: The Progressives, 2001, p. 101).
