Maqbool Fida Husain is perhaps India's most famous artist of modern times. Famous for his stunning paintings of Indian women, and his habit of getting into controversies, he is also a multi-faceted person, having made movies, and served in India's Parliament.

The following are some of Husain's paintings at Kamat's Potpourri. All photographs are by K.L.Kamat. Captions are written by me, and may be pardoned (I have no access to the titles the artist gave to the following paintings).
