"The exhibition of young Stillman ably illustrates
his talent for subtle and harmonious distinctions."

"I don't know whether it is the reflection of his Russian
heritage or a peculiar spiritual approach of the artist to his
work that imbues his work with a strange mystic quality."
December 24, 1928
"Stillman reveals to us a keenly sensitive and talented artist.
Stillman has mastered his craft and realizes this mastery in his
paintings. His still-lifes are splendidly poised, his portraits
living. He is a born painter, whose talent will assuredly mature

"At the Bernheim-Jeune Galleries, the first Paris exhibition
of the works of Ary Stillman brings the discovery of a fine temperament.
One finds no metaphysics, no distortions or sham in these canvases.
Certainly there is evidence of a scientific approach, but this
is cleverly concealed. They are poems simple and direct, which
come from the heart and move the heart."

"Ary Stillman is a painter who is constantly experimenting
in many directions and who has a splendid feeling for color harmonies."
December 29, 1928
"Stillman is well named, for if I am not mistaken his name
means a man of silence. Indeed, Stillman is a silent artist. He
appears to be a painter who despises bluff and blustering and
who has carefully avoided philosophies full of sterile theories,
and artificially enlightened schools. Stillman is silent, but
in a discreet manner. The resonance and profundity of his work
are there for those who know how to discover and see them."

"Ary Stillman has succeeded in rising above the ordinary
picturesquness. He is a painter above all else."
"The rich and extraordinary luminous colors sensitively juxtaposed
recalls to mind the styles of no other artist."

Among American exhibitors, it is but justice to call
attention to Ary Stillman, whose PORTRAIT OF A YOUNG GIRL and
INDIAN DANCE are the work of a delicate and sincere artist. Since
his last one-man show, Stillman has perfected the original technique
which distinguishes his paintings and gives them almost the effect
of tapestries. This curious process has proved exceptionally effective
in his portrait, which is a very beautiful picture, radiating
deep feeling and a strange, subdued harmony of color that is extremely

"Stillman stands out; his portrait of a woman arranging flowers
is a solid piece of work, yet very delicately handled."
July 9, 1932
"Stillman true poet that he is, approaches his subject with
an understanding for that which is not always apparent on the
exterior. A thoughtful glance, the trembling quiver of a mouth,
the ardent pallor, where the oval emerges from the shadows, the
relaxed hand all his portraits take on a significance that
reveals understanding nobility of the painter."
