“[Diebenkorn] is still struggling for a resolution between his subtle sense for composition and a psychological mood that is introduced alone with the figure.” —Herschel B. Chipp for ART News (April 1958)

“ …one of the Nation’s important younger painters…” —Miriam Dungan Cross for Oakland Tribune (11 August 1957)
