Footnotes

  • Provenance: Private Collection, Germany; bought from a private collection in Paris, thence by descent.

    During his time in Paris, Sadequain flourished in his style and began to assimilate the methods he learnt in Pakistan to the discovery of new methods in Paris. He combined the practices of calligraphy with Cubism and Surrealism, and artists such as Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon and Fernand Leger influenced his style during this period. Sadequain was not an artist who wanted to conform to anyone else's mode of art, which explains why he used his surroundings and own teachings to fashion the style which he is now famous for. This particular work Judgement in Paris was executed during his time in Paris and is the perfect example of how Sadequain was a most discerning rule-breaker.
