THE PRESTIGE OF BEING INCLUDED IN A ROYAL ACADEMY SHOW
A RAREST EVENT FOR A MUSLIM ARTIST M.A. RAHMAN CHUGHTAI

Royal Academy Show London 1937

The Royal Academy Show was the ultimate dream of participation of every artist. To be included in that show was not a joke, for a panel of international experts had to give their approval to same. Two works of M.A. Rahman Chughtai were selected. One was Mourning of Shah Jahan and the other was Mughal Princesses. But due to lack of space, only one painting was exhibited, and made headlines here. Finally M.A. Rahman Chughtai was represented at the Royal Academy of Arts.

We do not know the latest situation but are sure that the artist M.A. Rahman Chughtai even till today would be one of the very few Muslim artists represented at the Royal Academy. Take pride in your artist, Pakistan!
