'My work is now guided by a concern with plastic qualities. I am more deeply involved with the form than with the content. When one is young and beginning, one's work is dominated by content, by ideas - but as one grows older, one turns to the language of painting itself. I have grown detached - I want to the find the same peace that the mystics found.' (Ram Kumar in an interview from 1991, Ram Kumar A Journey Within, New Delhi, 1996, p. 117)

The colours of the original are similar to the catalogue illustration. An approximately 20 cm. diagonal hairline scratch (10. cm from the upper left corner) extending from the upper edge of the canvas towards the centre has been retouched and fluoresces under UV light. Further scattered spots of retouching are visible under UV light along the upper edge and in the lower left corner and towards the centre of the lower edge. Overall good condition.
