Maqbool Fida Husain, popularly known as M. F. Husain, was an Indian painter and filmmaker famous for his brightly colored modified Cubist paintings. Nicknamed the “Picasso of India,” Husain started his career creating Bollywood film posters. His paintings of horses depict his signature style – a combination of Indian tribal, mythological, and folk arts. The upcoming auction, offered by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, will highlight a 2002 watercolor painting of a horse by Husain. The Cubist piece shows a galloping golden horse illuminated with the power of the Sudarshan Chakra. The painting emphasizes the spirit of the horses, as well as words from Hindu scripture.
An oil on canvas piece featuring an Indian woman dressed in traditional attire by B. Prabha is another notable offering of contemporary Indian art. The elongated frame of rural women painted in bold colors is a distinguishing feature of her artwork. Other highlights include a figurative abstract egg tempera on paper piece by David Clyde Driscoll and Impressionist paintings of women by still-life painter Abbott Graves. Also offered are Chinese Qing dynasty porcelain wares, antique and modern furniture, Lalique glassware, jewelry, and bronze sculptures.
