Description:
Ustad Allah Bux (Pakistan, 1895-1978) Untitled (Potato Harvest) Signed and dated 1968 lower right Oil on Canvas 87 x 137.5cm (34 1/4 x 54 1/8in). Provenance Collection of Mr Salman Khaliq, retired senior civil servant, Lahore, Pakistan. Acquired directly form the artist by the above in 1976 Born in Wazirabad, a town in Punjab, in 1885, Allah Bux had become an accomplished signboard painter at a very young age. In 1914 he travelled to Bombay where he worked in various establishments as a photographer, retouch artist and portrait and landscape painter at the Bombay Art Studio. In 1919 he returned to Lahore. He painted popular scenes of Hindu Mythology. Allah Bux's beautiful work caught the eye of the Maharajah of Patiala, where he lived and worked until he moved to Lahore permanently. His focus on Hindu iconography and his free movement between what became India and Pakistan was telling of a pre partitional shared visual identity. Allah Bux was not just creating a whimsical romanticised scene, he was creating a narrative of a golden age, an innocence pre dating the war and bloodshed of partition and independence. Once settled in the newly formed Pakistan, Allah Bux looked to a regional history of his homeland of Punjab for inspiration. He created idyllic scenes of villagers, festivities and folk tales.

Born in Warizistan, in what is now Pakistan in 1895, Allah Bux had become an acclaimed and renowned painter in 1935 when he painted this piece. Stylistically his works bore the hallmarks of the European realism tradition however the content of his works were influenced by indigenous subjects. Known for his paintings of idyllic rural scenes of his home region of Punjab, Allah Bux routinely looked to Punjab folktales for inspiration.

Allah Bux began his painting career as a signboard painter before working at a railway workshop in Lahore as a carriage painter. Bux also worked for Agha Husher's theatrical company painting theatrical set backgrounds. By 1919 he had become a landscape and portrait painter in his own right. Such was his reputation by this point that he was invited by the Maharaja of Patiala in 1937 to paint exclusively for him.

One of the most widely known and revered Hindu Gods is Krishna,worshipped as the eighth reincarnation of Vishnu. In popularmythology, Krishna has performed many miracles and slain manydemons. As a youth, he was depicted as a lover, playing the fluteto tempt gopis (wives and daughters of the cowherds) intoleaving their huts and following Krishna. According to legend, hisfavorite gopi was the beautiful Radha. Another fable includes Krishna and a large serpent namedKaliya that had made its home in the Yamuna river. Due tothe serpent's poison all the fish, birds, trees and grasssurrounding the lake were suffering. Krishna jumped into the laketo disturb the serpent, who rose and started to crush Krishna in atight coil. Krishna fought the serpent and then banished him to theocean, forbidding him to ever return. These colourful anecdotes are depicted in this painting, mostnotably, Krishna playing the flute, the beautiful gopi Radhaand the battle with the serpent Kaliya .
