Critical Review:
Tuhari's lyrical heroes are working people. The series of coloured woodcuts "People - the Asset of Moldova" having been exposed in 1962 at the Republican Art Exhibition "Seven Years Plan in Action" is a typical example. The series won the spectator by the bright decorations, by the integrity, harmony, but mainly by the mightiness, by the sound the artist by a free, so to say, careless line transforms the siluette images into something similar to the cheap popular print - this naive symbolical-poetical legend about the country worker.
