M. A. R. Chughtai
22.2 x 17.2 in. / 56.4 x 43.7 cm.
Watercolour on handmade paper
A proponent of the wash style of the Bengal School with its stylised, luminous beauty, M. A. R. Chughtai turned to the Mughal miniature for inspiration, and continued to paint in post-Partition Lahore, widely regarded as the national artist of Pakistan. Often, his subjects were based on mythology, and he endeavoured to tell grand stories in his paintings. It’s a possibility that Chughtai wanted to fill in more colour in this painting, depicting two figures, a male and a female, the latter holding a falcon.
