This work is part of the

Famine

Series.

Known as the father of modern Bangladeshi art, Zainul Abedin's most significant and tantalizing works were part of his

Famine

series. The depiction of starving men, women and children during the great rice famine in Bangladesh in 1943 caused great impact on the artist and is now known as influencing his greatest works. The present work depicts a scene from this series.

Regarding the series, critic Stuart Griffin wrote, "Like a Goya angry over captive suffering over what wounds and war do to human beings, Zainul Abedin grew angry and, like the Spaniard, he painted angrily. Day and night he sketched, for days on end, his eyes glued to the terrible panorama, and when the hunger finally lifted, 2,000 sketches were there to depict the Indian horror, for anyone to come and see and try to fathom." (Ahmed, Jalaluddin.

Pre-Lot Text

PROPERTY FROM THE LINDGREN COLLECTION

View Lot Notes ›
Zainul Abedin is arguably one of the most renowned artists from Bangladesh. Scenes from the banks of the Brahmaputra river where Abedin spent much of his childhood served as a source of inspiration throughout his career and appear in many of his works. The rustic charm of the country images portrayed in 'Rangamoti' (lot 8) and 'Landscape with Hut' (lot 9) are hallmarks of Abedin's style.
