Maqbool Fida Hussain was born in Pandharpur in Maharashtra, India on September 17, 1915 and is perhaps the best known Indian artist.

Forbes magazine has referred to him as the “Picasso of Indian Art”. MF Hussain has stayed in the news as much for his art as for the controversies surrounding his work. In 1996, rightwing groups raised a ruckus over his 1970 painting of the Hindu Goddesses Saraswati and Durga that had been loaned by the artist to the National Gallery of Modern Art.
