‘Amrita had a dual attitude towards large cities. She hated their greyness and by implication their inhumanity, and at the same time she could not do without their stimulation… Her distaste for big cities went hand in hand with the fact that she felt at home in them. She seemed to seek solitude in the midst of the din and clang of people.’

– Yashodhara Dalmia, Amrita Sher-Gil A Life
