Catalogue Note

Inscribed by Husain in Urdu on the reverse:
"Fragrance of flowers, the story of the heart, the shining lamp in any company; But how distressed he is for having been ousted from her Mehfil, the circle of her friends and admirers."
Poem by 19th century poet Mirza Ghalib, Translated by Sahar Bandial
