Critic Hilton Kramer, in reviewing a show for the New York Times, containing Mr. Chimento’s work commented in a review, “...still there are paintings of some interest here by artists who were new to this writer.... Tony Chimento’s “Sunday Afternoon” is a solid realist work”

In one of the first reviews of his work, Sylvia Day writes in Lifestyle Magazine: “My first introduction to Chimento’s work was at a show at the Woodstock Artist’s Association. There.... was a large painting which made an immediate impression of elegance and uncommon technique... Chimento paints large canvases, their dramatic subject-matter and impeccable draughtsmanship a feast for the eye... He owns an original and unmistakably unique style.
