This inspiring display of over four hundred works by one of Pakistan’s modern masters spanned four and a half decades of his artistic career. Commencing with an oil painting executed in 1962, the retrospective illuminated Naqsh’s favourite themes: pigeons, women, women and pigeon, women and horse, mother and child Ode to love and his innovative rendition of the maghribi style of Arabic calligraphy. The collection, curated by Marjorie Husain and Nasreen Askari was a fitting tribute to Naqsh’s creative genius in a remarkable variety of media: pencil, ink, ball-point pen, compelling water colors, bold acrylics and dramatic oils.
