I am deeply saddened to learn of the demise of Ms Mrinalini Mukherjee. She leaves behind a vacuum in the world of art. Her artistic works brought laurels to her not only in India, but in the outside world also. Her artistic qualities provide her at a unique place in contemporary Indian art, the Minister said.
My deep sympathies are with the art lovers and all others who admire Ms Mrinalinijis work. We should work in the direction of promotion and conservation of such artistic works which are left behind as a legacy by such great artists, he added.
