"In the work of Maria Rud, we witness a renaissance of the European fine-art tradition. Maria’s powerful artistic voice embodies a continuity with the past. Abstraction and cubism are united with form, through a figuration as confident and individual as that of the Old Masters. It represents the Past, the Present and the Future, a symbol of civilisation."
André Zabbeni, Fine Art Advisor, Switzerland
"Maria's work has an extraordinary and unmistakable artistic presence and integrity, combining the structure and formality of an icon, with the vitality and strong lines of Picasso, and the musicality and symbolic richness of Chagal. Living with these paintings in my home has been a privilege."

"Maria Rud’s paintings are a haunting response to exile and homecoming, marking out possible ways through time and space. Immersed in the spirit of the Russian avant-garde, the artist echoes icons and pious images, embraces fairy tales and legends. She reveals the core of sophisticated music and the gist of kabbala. A shining light originated in ancient times, Maria Rud is re-enchanting the world."
