Naqsh did a series of paintings depicting horses and women having been inspired by Marino Marini (1901-1980), the Italian sculptor and educator, who worked mainly in bronze on a few favourite themes, notably the horse and rider. Naqsh was drawn to Marini's works as Marini maintained his individualism and had not allied himself with avant-garde movements of the time, reminiscent of Naqsh's approach to his work. The present lot likely comes from Naqsh's Homage to Marino Marini series, given its distinct sculptural and overlapping fragmented forms that merge into intricate textures and patterns. To see other works from the series, featuring both, horses individually, and horses with women, see Mohatta Palace Museum, Karachi, Jamil Naqsh: A retrospective, 2003, pp. 169-205.
