"I had a long talk with Husain, we lunched together and I took him to my own exhibition as Galerie Parat - where I am showing 35 canvases - "15 years of painting, 1971-1985". My present work leaves no one indifferent.... We had a fine time together, and I was happy to show him my latest works - which have, in any case, received a most warm and enthusiastic reception both in public and press."
S.H. Raza, quoted in A. Vajpeyi, 'Geysers: Letters Between Sayed Haider Raza & His Artist-Friends', Vadehra Art Gallery, New Delhi, 2013
