Mahreen Zuberi, ‘Untitled’, 2008, Christie's South Asian + Chinese

In contrast to the opulence of miniature painting, Zuberi's work strives for austerity. Yet it was her rigorous training under Imran Qureshi at the National College of Arts, Lahore that taught her how to layer color and achieve intimacy of scale. In recent years, Zuberi has exhibited with the Devi Art Foundation, New Delhi (2010); Asia Society Museum, New York (2009); National Gallery of Art, Islamabad (2005) and Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Fukuoka (2004).
