Comments in English:
“Ana Baxter transforms metaphysical signs into visual images, and strains them through her feminine, sentimental and material nature. Thelia Behar. (Buenos Aires Herald. Argentina - 1977)
“She is an artist that structures a world of singular images, travelling in poetic flights”. Oscar Félix Haedo. (Correo de Arte – Buenos Aires, Argentina – 1978)
“Is astonishing her keen abilities with materials and elements”. Alfredo Andrés (Diario La Opinión Buenos Aires, Argentina- 1978)
“Ana Baxter is an artist in permanent creative tension among the ideal of a sublime world and trivial realities, sometimes cruel, of our suffering Humanity. Alejandrina Morelli (Diario Península, Punta del Este, Uruguay - 1980)
“Her etchings must be classified as figurative and symbolic. The taste of her vigorous and perfect quality for engraving confirms her passionate and inspired daily work.” Enrique Vernazza (Diario El País, Montevideo, Uruguay 1984)
“In etchings, Ana Baxter shows permanent inspiration, subtle delicacy and grace.” Amalia Poleri. (Diario El País, Montevideo, Uruguay. 1984)
“Ana Baxter is a young talent, and creates a suggestive universe of images”. Miguel Carbajal. (Diario El País, Montevideo, Uruguay – 1985)
“From deep silence is born and grows Ana Baxter´s soul, with a strong whisper of faith and hope.” Marco Orsi. ( Mensuario delle Arti, Rome, Italy, 1985)
“Hard artistic work in Ana Baxter is sustained by her day - dream vision, without abandoning daily realities of her surrounding world.” Mila Murzi. (Scena Illustrata – Semanario delle Arti - Rome – Italy –1985)
“Ana Baxter rescues artistic values, expressing herself with universal codes. This South American artist that came to Rome to present her work, upholds these values without limits in space and time.”
Profesor Carlo Savini. Vice- Presidente della Unione Europea dei Critici d´ Arte - 1985.
( Diario L´ Osservattore Romano, Rome, Italy. – 1985)
“Ana Baxter, is an expert artist in the interpretation of secret thoughts, through her exquisite and mental masked faces”. Contesa Daria Federici. (Scena Illustrata. Rome – Italy. 1986 )
“She is a painter with a finest perception in colour, tones and forms, that has been recognized in many countries of Latinamerica and Europe, as well as in the United States of America”. Mayling Carro Amorín (Diario La Mañana - Montevideo- Uruguay -1997).
“ These paintings are essentially Uruguayan. By the subject and the character, the atmosphere, the richness of colour. Humidity absorbs with poetry the air of those landscapes at the countryside and there is a special dramatic expression at the faces, which are the essence of candombe, so pathetic and sensuous. Congratulations!!!”
