Jump to navigation. Husain, who's been called The Picasso of India by Forbes magazine, came to India in looking for a career in art but ended up painting movies posters to earn a livelihood. That's probably one of the most famous stories surrounding the man who always moved around barefoot, famously took a shine to Madhuri Dixit and several other actresses, often painting a series on them, and later left the country as the voices of dissent against his art grew. His paintings of nude Indian gods and goddesses irked radicals and he spent the last few years of his life out of India, and died in London.

This is funny but if Brahmin continue to gain power like this,after 5 years Brahmins like Mohan Bhagwat,Arun Jaitley,Devendra Fadnavis,Sushma Swaraj,togadia,singhal,sadhvi pragya will issue such law for sure. Brahma is the creator of the universe, Saraswati, who became the wife of her own father, was the daughter of Brahma. The other is that Brahma used to collect his semen in a pot whenever he masturbated fixing his carnal eyes on the celestial beauty Urvasi. Thus,Saraswati had no mother. This daughter or grand-daughter of Brahma is the Hindu goddess of learning. When Brahma saw the beauty of Saraswati he became amorous. Brahma and his daughter Saraswati lived as husband and wife indulging in incest for years.
This is a curious argument in defence of heterodoxy. Back in the 16 th century, the Church found itself up the creek without a canon. Plagued by fifteen hundred years of heresies and heterodoxies, disagreements over the sacraments and the scriptures, not to mention a perfect storm of lusty, busty images in Renaissance religious art, the Catholic Church sat in ecumenical council between and and decided, once and for all, what was IN and what was OUT. Index of Prohibited Books. It took the Church just over years—from the crucifixion of its founder to the Council of Trent—to decide which of its written books and unwritten traditions were truly sacred and which were profane and which were to be banned. In its final session in , the Council laid down the law on sacred images.
Another nude portrait, another outcry. We are back to the same old argument about freedom of expression. The artist has gone on the defensive saying that his untitled oil and acrylic painting was not of the Hindu God but just an anthropomorphic image of God. People have a right to disagree with my work but my right to express my views cannot be curtailed. The work is untitled because I want people to interpret it on their own. With this statement he is handing over to the protestors a long rope to hang himself with. For, by his logic, their interpretation is valid, too. Do artists assume that if they title their works, then only their interpretation must prevail? These have mythological, and symbolic, meanings.
