"Like virtually every profession at the time, poster design was a male preserve. That Ethel Reed could rise to become an acknowledged leader among American posterists of the period is a tribute to her artistic superiority and impeccable taste" (Gold p.58)

 

"The Poster, concluded in an 1898 article on her thusly: Ethel Reed knows well the marvellous secret of design and colours, and while she executes pictures with clever hands, she sees with her own, and not masculine eyes; her work has feminine qualities; one sees in it a woman, full of sweetness and delicacy, and this is the greatest praise one can bestow upon a woman" (Phillips I)
