Oil on canvas 210 x 150cm (82 11/16 x 59 1/16in). Provenance Private UK collection Acquired by the above from a private French collection, whose father acquired the work directly from the artist in France. After winning the Pakistan National prize for painting in 1960, Sadequain was invited by the French Committee of the International Association of Plastic Arts to visit Paris. Already a celebrated artist in Pakistan, the next few years in Paris catapulted Sadequain onto the international platform. In 1961 he was awarded the ‘Laureate de Paris’ at the Paris Bienalle and the scholarship prize enabled him to remain in Paris. He held solo exhibtions in Paris, the USA and London. As well as shows around the world, Sadequain was amassing a hoard of Parisian patrons. In 1964, Sadequain was commissioned to illustrate Abert Camus’ 1942 book L’Étranger (The Stranger). In late 1966 he was commissioned to create a mural for the offices of Pakistan International Airways in Paris. He was paid in part with flight tickets. He was still supported by a number of patrons, and following the PIA commission was amassing a body of work which was to form part of a major exhibition in Rouen. These works were never displayed as Sadequain decided to accompany his ailing father to Iraq and subsequently back to Pakistan. Sadequain recounts in his letters: “Father was in poor health during his visit to Paris. Still, he insisted that I continue with my plans to travel to Rouen, as I had to deliver a number of heavy portfolios of my work and attend an opening. Upon arriving at the train platform, I found out that the train was delayed. If the train had arrived on time, I would have occupied my seat and proceeded. While waiting, I became restless and decided that while exhibitions will continue to happen in future, it is not right for me to leave my father in ill health alone. I impulsively decided to accompany him to Baghdad. . . . But the issue of visiting the holy shrines during the return journey from Paris remained unresolved. For this reason, I decided to accompany him through his ziarat, and then return to Paris from Baghdad. . . . On the second day in Baghdad, after being blessed, father was fully recovered. While his seat was being confirmed for his return trip to Karachi, he said, “Son! You have come as far as here [Baghdad], why not come along to Karachi?” and that is how I returned to Karachi with him.” Works from this so called ‘Lost Exhibition’ depict heavily stylised figures in broad sweeping lines, bearing influence of the École de Paris. Sadequain’s admiration for Matisse and Picasso is well documented. This particular work can draw parallels with the composition of Picasso’s famous Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. Although successful in Paris, Sadequain found the lifestyle there difficult to adjust to and yearned for home. He returned to Pakistan as a celebrated national artist.
