Maqbool Fida Husain’s Bulls

New York | 20 March

Sixty years after its creation, Bulls’ return to auction this season represents another landmark moment for the market. Synonymous with Harry N. Abrams' eminent monograph, the painting and its historic importance form a story of the great genius and success of Husain, the modernizing mythology of Bulls, the pioneering publishing work of Abrams, the esteemed commentary of Bartholomew and Kapur, and the continued legacy of both painter and painting.

Bulls will be featured in the Modern and Contemporary South Asian Art Auction, which will take place at Sotheby’s New York on 20 March.

Manjari Sihare-Sutin, Vice President, Specialist, Head of Sale New York, narrates Husain's story and the greatness of Bulls.
