"Hellmuth and Hellgah Dieken are masters of the art of mural painting. Each is inspired by the artists awareness of history, yet creating reproductions was far from their minds. They achieve illusions as masters of a special brand of fantasy that is ages old, but their use of traditional techniques is tempered by the able addition of humour. Humour is the ingredient that makes the work timely for this century."

Martin D. Schwarz, Lecturer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC
