“It took a lot of courage for an artist like Ray Kinstler to say ‘I’m not abandoning what I know is the vitality of art.’
“The vitality of art is in the capturing of life – capturing the pulse of the human beast. And that is what Ray insisted on doing throughout this tremendous change in artistic fashion.”

Tom Wolfe
“Kinstler would have been a great illustrator – he can really draw, and I mean draw.”

James Montgomery Flagg
“I don’t think there’s been a better portrait painter since Sargent, Kinstler is that good.”

Tony Bennett
“It’s about time there was a great book about this great illustrator.”

Sergio Aragones
“Everett Kinstler’s portrait of me is my favorite.”

Katharine Hepburn
“A rich and varied volume of magnificent examples of Kinstler’s formative works. Conscientious and well-illustrated. Bravo!”

William Stout
“Nobody has his combination of stunning technique, accuracy and energy. An unbelievable talent! This book knocked my eyes out.”

Thomas Yeates
