Professor William Innes Homer (1920-2012) along with other art historians perspectives of Pinajians art.
- The discovery of a high quality artist's nearly complete oeuvre is rare and exceptional, particularly when it includes significant ephemera. This does not happen every day!
- By a consensus of several noted art historians and critics as well as a growing body of collectors, Pinajian is a worthy artist deserving of critical attention of the highest order. Film documentarian Donald Pruden and Prof. Bill Homer compared reproductions of works by contemporary artists, living or recently deceased, with works by Pinajian. In virtually every case, Pinajian's pictures held their own and at times surpassed the competing examples (including works by second generation Abstract Expressionist such as Joan Mitchell and Michael Goldberg -- who have record prices for individual works in the 7 and 6 figures respectively).
- Pinajian was a rare theoretical artist, uncommon in our time. His desire to find a rational basis for art can be compared to that of Seurat, Mondrian, and Kandinsky. Central to his thinking was the concept of structural color which he articulated in his writings and his visual presentations. This was a fundamental tenet in modern art from CÚzanne to Abstract Expressionism, and Pinajian mastered it creatively. Pinaijian was a true philosopher of art, a rarity in his era and well worth our attention.
- He was an extraordinarily inventive creator of a Surrealist pictorial vocabulary. He is virtually without parallel in this area of creativity. Material from his sketch books in particular are rich in surrealist imagery.
