She is to be congratulated on livening up our dreary lives." - Art Review “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” John Russell Taylor Collections The British Museum prints and drawings collection The British Library London The Arts Council of Great Britain University of Aberystwyth Ashmolean Museum Oxford Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge Leicester Education Department read full statement
