„Gheorghe Ivancenco has successfully dedicated himself to city scenes and especially to aspects of industrial centeres which today are developing apace. His recent linocuts show a trend towards simplified expression, towards a language free of all superflous accessories; this trend is manifest in various graphic genres as well as in thematic composition in painting. Where this is successful – which in out view is often the case – it produces a clarity and expressivity of composition and line which constitutes one of the essential traits of graphiuc art in general” – The Fine Arts in the Rumanian People’s Republic, Meridians Publishing House, 1961
