''Anthony Ackrill is the only painter I know who combines an amazing ability when it comes to traditional technical skills with a very modern sense of subject matter. Painting a human navel on a silver platter in a realistic manner would appeal to both Courbet and Duchamp.

Ackrill’s multi-figural compositions exhibit Old Master technical skills yet again there is a very modern sensibility. The figures all have a sense of being here and now even though they are rendered in a manner that would delight Correggio.''
