Bronze Head is an exceptional work by Maqbool Fida Husain as the woman in this painting has clearly defined features and a strong sense of individuality. Bikram Singh writes of this painting "With a few exceptions - such as the Untitled female head of 1984 (Fig 103) that looks like the head of an Egyptian woman and the brown-ink-on-paper-works done by Husain in Honolulu in 1982 in which the women clearly have delineated faces and therefore, appear as persons rather than just female forms - most of his women are faceless."
