Detailed news about inclusion of Anti-Hindu M F Husain’s paintings

It was at the flat of P. N. Sharma, a friend and well-wisher of M. F. Husain in New Delhi, that Elizabeth Partridge saw the painter on his hands and knees (Husain rarely used an easel) surrounded by a number of half-finished canvasses which covered every surface and hung from every wall.

Now the Modern and Contemporary South Asian art auction on June 7 in New Bond Street, London, will bring down the hammer on The Blue Lady, valued at £ 70,000-90,000 (Rs.77.7 lakh), which is now part of the private collection of UK-based John Hay.

The Blue Lady was acquired from Dhoomimal Gallery in New Delhi in the mid-50s by Hay’s aunt, who then presented it to Hay’s mother Partridge as a wedding present in India. Elizabeth was a foreign correspondent for The News Chronicle and also worked for The Times of India in New Delhi during a time when the country was still adjusting to its newfound independence.

Hay’s aunt expressed her great interest in the work and Husain, in turn, told her that he was "under contract" to produce a number of paintings for the proprietor of the Dhoomimal Art Gallery in Connaught Place. Having seen how beautiful Husain’s paintings were, Hay’s aunt resolved to purchase one of them as a wedding present for her much-loved sister.

The gallery owner told her that Husain called the work ‘The Blue Lady’ and that is forever how it was known within the family.
