“It helps to have had one’s hands covered with paint. Someone, after a long life, is standing at the door of some facet of wisdom.” –Nathaniel Tarn

“[From the} perspective of someone who has been trained not just to look but to see, and to not miss anything in his field of vision.” —Ammiel Alcalay

“King dissects a variety of paintings principally from the modern movements of nineteenth and twentieth century painting…. He moves through their lives as a demanding Vasari, with whom we test our own visual experience.”  —Roy Skodnick
