Video: M.F Husain - Through the Eyes of a Painter (excerpt)

M.F Husain painted freely and on a monumental scale, perhaps influenced by his early career as a painter of cinema billboards. He also made many films. 'Through the Eyes of a Painter' compiles glimpses of the architecture, people and places of Husain's India.

The film won the Golden Bear at the 1967 Berlin Film Festival.
