"With wonderment, Margret Short has embraced the knowledge of ancient paints and surfaces. She shares her gifts with generosity, when many artists would prefer to hold their secrets tight. Her enthusiasm when speaking of the minerals, gemstones and earth pigments, she grinds for paint and the metal surfaces she paints on transports the audience back in time. Her mastery of the medium and her beautiful "chiaroscuro" paintings have been recognized all over the world and will be a treasure to future generations."
Diane Kruger Owner, Signature D Art Cons
"Margret Short is a painter of light. Her style, though deeply rooted in the traditions of the Renaissance, has a fresh and gestural quality that transcends time and space..."
Robert Joki Director, The Sovereign Collection
"Margret Short's still lifes radiate light with the wonderful color and drama of an American artist so skilled in the European tradition..."
Thomas Augustine Stepping Out, Art buyers magazine
"To view Short's work is comparable to viewing a 17th century painting at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Short is an Old World Master living in contemporary times. She is a painter of chiaroscuro with her canvas possessing almost imperceptible gradations of light and dark. Short's work is inspired both by objects from her studio and world treasures collected from her travels, which extends her still-life genre in a sensitive and compelling manner."
