"Mr. Crawford is ready to use any type of equipment necessary in order to pursue the end he has envisioned, such as binoculars, cameras (stills or moving), sound, and the microscope. These devices have helped him produce the important clarity necessary to yield the essence of his work.
Popularity comes slowly to some. Ralston Crawford's recognition as a very important artist is right now at its peak. Most major collectors seek his work. He has never compromised. He has never made it easy for himself or those around him. He has stood firm to his commitments with an undauntlessness similar to the ' old man and the sea' " (Ralston Crawford Catalog).
