about artist

An artist in his own right, Shamshad Husain was born in Mumbai in 1946. He was the son of prolific artist MF Husain. Born into a family of art, the passion for it seemed only natural. Studying art in Baroda and London further honed his skills to make him into the artist he became. His canvases were a palette of his signature earthy hues and solemn figures. One of his most notable works were the ‘Love in the Time of Cholera’ series. He lived and worked in Delhi and passed away in 2015.
