Oil on canvas
Unsigned - inscribed with title on verso
36 inches x 47 inches (91.5 x 119.5 cm)
From the collection of Park B. Smith, New York, who acquired the painting at the Gita Art Gallery, New Delhi, India circa 1981.
While we are aware that it would be considered unusual for the artist M.F. Husain not to have signed a painting of this size, it never-the-less is certainly in the style of Husain and the consignor purchased it at a Gallery in New Delhi in the early 1980s as a Husain.
We are also well aware that Husain's works, like so many other popular artists, were widely copied, reproduced, and forged in his own lifetime. However, those generally exhibit a forged signature.
That is why we are offering this painting as being 'attributed to' or 'circle of' the artist M.F. Husain (1915-2011).
Our definition of attributed is as follows: On the basis of style, the work can be ascribed to the artist. However, there is less certainty as to the authorship and the attribution is no guarantee of authenticity.
