2018 Nahas, Dominque; dArt International, The Explorations of Francine Tint: “This artist is a senior member of the ab-ex boy’s-club movement and over the years has not relinquished her steady hold of gestural abstraction.”
2016 Halasz, Piri; From The Mayor’s Doorstep, feb 1 2016: “Love Goddess” (2012) by Francine Tint, combined vigorous organization built by flowing lines with a radiant palette of pinks, golds and blues. Here is an artist who knows and loves both Venetian color and Florentine design!”
2015 The Observer: Reinvention: Francine Tint’s Abstractions Evolve at Walter Wickiser Gallery. Piri Halsz, February 2015: “Colors are brighter, with much more vigorous color contrasts, and Ms. Tint has taken to emulating Manet, Goya and Velázquez in using black as a color more often.”
2012 Halasz, Piri, From The Mayor’s Doorstep, No. 104 (16 October-22 December 2012) “… Over at Wickiser, Tint’s “Spouting” (2012) is the best…”
2010 Halasz, Piri, From the Mayor’s Doorstep, At the top of the list “Divine Influence: Past and Present” at Wilmer Jennings, “A number of shows that I’ve seen in the past month merit attention, mostly because of their quality…” “The paintings that I like best were Strawberry
Fields Forever and Aurum both by Tint.” December 1, 2010

2008 Wilkin, Karen, Art in America, Reviews Tria Show October 2008, pg 194: “Tint’s aims haven’t changed, but the context for her work has, allowing-or forcing us to consider it in new ways.”
2008 Halasz, Piri, From the Mayor’s Doorstep, June-July 2008: “Tint is such a reliable performer that it might be easy to take her for granted, were it not for the talent, enthusiasm and dedication she brings to her work, and the resultant sense of ease, control yet abandonment that it conveys.”
