Salaman wrote, in Modern Masters of Etching: Robert Austin, "Yet beyond the technique, there i spiritual expression. But in pure, full-toned etching he began to interpret compassionately the gaunt, primitive peasant, who returns from his labours to the solace of the Cross, austere plates these, Man and Crucifixion and Man and Cross, but beautifully expressive in their essential simplicity of design" (page 5).
