"Tore Ahnoffs daughter has compiled a beautiful book from a long life"
"We shall not have any Montmartre here in Gothenburg! The politicians in the 30's was not merciful when it came to artists. In the 50's had the artists and the art scene higher status and the city of Gothenburg, made a unique bet on ateljébostäder for artists. They are actually still in use."
"Tore Ahnoff (1917-2016) was Göteborgskonstnär, draftsman and painter with a particular sense of the recurring motifs and the variable point of view, perhaps caught in the train window with a landscape svishande past. Airy and cool harmonizing but with bold coloristic element; the memory of man, the experience of body and landscape."
"His daughter, Lisbeth Ahnoff, has compiled a beautiful book on this long and productive life. Tore Ahnoff - a productive life is rich bildsatt and in the margin is brevcitat, photos and newspaper clippings. Together they create a composite picture of a productive life, lived close to the motives and people. A artistry as within it depicting ram develops both patterns and surfaces on fantasies."
"A productive life guided by curiosity and the generosity to share. Ahnoff had a number of positions of trust, was a teacher of painting and director at the art school Valand school of fine arts (1961-71), traveled in Europe, Egypt, and Ethiopia. But most of all, he spent a lot of time on southeastern Öland, sweden, where the sky reaches all the way down to the ground."
"I am myself curious about ”betongintarsian” in the floor at the Department of Occupational and environmental Medicine in Gothenburg, sweden, Ahnoff yourself carried out with a rebar while the concrete was still soft."
