PROPERTY FROM AN IMPORTANT MUMBAI COLLECTION

Acrylic on woven rattan
1982
11 3/4 × 17 3/4 in. (29.9 × 45.1 cm.)

Signed ‘Husain’ lower right and dated and inscribed ‘Honolulu - 5.III.’82’ lower left

‘Against a strongly racing line, as in the paintings with horses, flat interrupted surfaces of colour are used to arrest movement, place power on a leash as it were, thereby at once controlling and accentuating it. Colour itself is usually applied in a mixture of brush and knife, in swift sure strokes. The result of all this is a rich and vital art, an abstraction of power, movement and feeling in rare balance.’

(Shiv S. Kapur, Husain, Lalit Kala Contemporary Series, New Delhi, 1961, p. viii)
Condition: The colours of the original are slightly richer and brighter than the catalogue illustration. A few woven strips of the rattan have come loose. Protected behind glass, they appear stable. Overall good condition.
