M.F. Husain’s son presents father’s rare portrait to AMU

Aligarh, Feb 2: Shamshad Husain, son of renowned painter M.F. Husain, Sunday presented a rare painting of his father to the Aligarh Muslim University.

Shamshad was the chief guest at the inaugural function of a three-day national workshop on “Nature Interpretation and Diorama-Making in Museum”, organised by the department of museology.

Delivering the keynote address, Gulshan Kharbanda, proprietor of Akriti, New Delhi, said diorama themes that are conventionally environment-related can today be industrial, architectural or any technology to communicate about.

Highlighting the theme of the workshop, S. Asif A. Naqvi said the dioramic presentation techniques are now incorporating modern audiovisual, digital and mechanical devices and methods.

Diorama is a three-dimensional model of a landscape, event, space, scene or room, often enclosed in a glass showcase for exhibition purposes.
