..." Among living artists today, few possess the gift to capture the particular tempo and magic of the city as poetically as Basha Maryanska.
... There is no illusion of traditional perspective; all the structures are arranged on the two dimensions of the picture plane in the modernist manner.
Yet, despite the semiabstract style of the painting - indeed, even aided by the composition's strong formal atritbutes - the magic of fairy tale realm of spires, steeples, and gables is evoked. Like Dong Kingman and Loren MacIver, who became known primarily as poets of the city in forties and fifties of twentieth century, Basha Maryanska is a visual poet of the first rang".
