Watercolor and metallic paint on paper 2003. "the seated man laughs and points at the larger figure in the foreground. He urinates into one of his shoes while lifting his hands to his mouth in violent anguish. Within the painting, the larger figure is the object of ridicule, but his direct stare demands our compassion. 'Idiot' captures the humiliation of old age, disease, incontinence and pain with the dark humour that characterises Khakhar's final paintings." Label at Tate Modern show by Dercon and Raza.
