PETER BERGER art critic:

Dick Stapel is a master painter who uses his brushes with admirable ease; he combines a rare sense of empathy with a subtle psychological insight. Dick Stapel has a profound understanding of his models, but he refrains from too much self-expression in his portraiture; he registrates with an objective eye the particular traits of his sitters. His own nature is noticeable in an atmosphere of innuendo of his models, with a male poetry that is incapable of sentimentalism. However, the cool observation is not without human kindness.
