Art Times, March 1999: "Silverman's work is fiercely and resolutely representational, holding to a traditional background and aesthetic that flies in the face of the adherents and champions of modernism. Intensely personal, always masterful, Silvermans work is included in such collections as the Brooklyn Museum, the Philadelphia museum of Art the National Museum of American Art and the National Portrait Gallery."

It follows in the traditions of the journals of 19th century artists, Degas and Delacroix, and like theirs, Silverman's book substantiates the importance of drawing.
