The Indian artist Maqbool Fida Husain (17 September 1915 – 9 June 2011) is best known for his bold, vibrantly coloured paintings in a unique style derived from Cubism. He was one of the most recognised Indian artists of the 20th century and a founder of the Bombay Progressive Artists' Group. His name is associated with Indian modernism from the 1940s onwards and his free-thinking approach to art offended the sensibilities of both Muslims and Hindus alike.
