(…) His works are crossed with interchangeable human stereotypes, in a world where individuals have no place and where their unbelievable, pompous emptiness leads to an immoderate showing of their ego.
(Generalanzeiger, Bonn, October 27, 1970)

(Stuttgarter Ztg., April 16, 1971)
(…) The charm of these works lies in the delicate aquatint shades. They hide the demanding technique behind the end result.
(Südwest-Presse, Tübingen, July 23, 1970)
