Paula Kirkeby, owner of Smith Andersen Gallery, in Palo Alto says, “I was in my teens when I first encountered Harry Cohen’s paintings. They had the feeling of De Kooning. The work has evolved into a spirited and emotional life of its own. A Cohen hangs in my private office.”

Patricia Watts, Author of Harry Cohen: Painting from the Outside In, independent curator, consulting curator for the Marin Community Foundation and former chief curator at the Sonoma, says, “Harry Cohen is a gifted painter who is a master at constructing and organizing space using color; an important artist of the North Bay postwar artistic community.”

Michael Killen, who has discussed art and artists on TV with Nathan Oliveira, Francis Mill, Hacket Mill Gallery; Elliot Eisner, professor of Art and Education at the Stanford Graduate School; Ruth Water, Founder and Director, and Burlingame Museum of Art, and other leaders, says, “I own over 10 Cohen paintings that bring great joy to my life.”
