QUOTE said:
M.F. Hussain began his life in earnest as a Bollywood movie billboard artist and ended it in self-imposed exile in London. In the years between, he brought vivid colors and a freedom to the canvas not seen before in India, living by the motto that the confines of religion, caste, creed and color should never restrain a painter.

That philosophy led to his exile in 2006, after he painted a nude woman shaped like India’s map, called “Mother India,” which invoked threats by Hindu extremists.

To his death, Hussain garnered humble descriptions like “the bearded artist who loved to pad around barefoot” and soaring compliments like “the Picasso of India” in one breath.
