Executed in 2003

PROVENANCE:
Acquired directly from the artist by the present owner in 2014

The present work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the artist's son Shafat Husain, dated 2014.

'Like his bulls, spiders and lamps on women's thighs, boastful snakes and blackly passionate suns, Husain's horses are subterranean creatures. Their nature is not intellectualized; it is rendered as sensation or as abstract movement, with a capacity to stir up vague premonitions and passions, in a mixture of ritualistic fear and exultant anguish.' (R. Bartholomew and S. Kapur, Husain, New York, 1972, p. 42)
