Further signed, titled and inscribed 'Sujata Bajaj / "Ganapati" / Mixed Media / 92 x 57 cm' (on the reverse)

"Sujata reveals a direct perception of form and colour in a very personal concept. To my mind, her work is an important and original contribution to contemporary Indian art.

A more secretive part of her work is a vast collection of Ganapati drawings made over the years. I do not miss any opportunity to see these drawings whenever I visit Sujata in her studio. They always inspire me. I have also seen her experiment with the form in different mediums. The result is overwhelming. I have a strong wish to see Sujata one day exhibiting these works." (S.H. Raza, Paris, 2006)
