Pranee (Sriwiphat) Nimsamer
(1929-2000, Thailand)
" Pranee Tantisuk has much improved both in feeling and technique. Among her paintings we prefer the one representing a pipe and a box of matches on a table on the lower part of the picture and a hat on the top of it. Anyone may have his or her own particular interpretation, but in looking at the painting we prove a sense of loneliness, the longing for somebody who is physically absent but spiritually present."
By Professor Silpa Bhirasri
