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.”
