Criticism[edit]

It is nice to have a real humorist recruited to the ranks of gifted painters. She is to be congratulated on livening up our dreary lives.[7]

John Russell Taylor:

Ravel said he wanted his music to be complex, but not complicated. Anita Klein might say the same of her art. There is a grand simplicity to her works, but that is not the same as saying that they lack subtlety and ambiguity. On the contrary, they have the sort of unselfconscious directness that comes from living and breathing art for so long that it becomes second nature.[8]
