Quotations from the Dutch press
... an enrichment of the Dutch world of art, this Nassar.
(Mark Peeters, NRC Handelsblad, 12 March 1993)
... the image, clear and eloquent, must touch and adress the viewer without neglecting the confusion.
(Hans Sizoo, Kunstbeeld, march 1993) 
... by guarding his work from drawing in esthetics only, Nassar keeps the tension in the image alive.
(Jan Bart Klaster, het Parool, 3 march 1993) 
... Nassar's charming art of drawing. (Thea Figee, Kunstbeeld, march 1992)
