“There is pleasing strength and solidity about Arven’s works. She has an enormous gift for the development of plasticità within a painting, and yet, the sense of colour is almost lyrical… Emeralds warm themselves near vermilions with wild shimmering. The house-tops never distract from the exquisite sensitivity of landscapes or calm candor of the atmosphere. Florence Arven, in preservating this alloyage of virtues, is an artist of a native freshness who harmonizes her tecnique with the art of silence”
