"Ury was the first to paint Berlin street pictures: the modern street with its chasing and hissing, its busy little people, its sedate horse-drawn omnibuses, its old-fashioned hackneys, the city street at dusk with all its lovely reflections of the sun against houses and asphalt [.]. Yes, Ury was the first to paint modern Berlin. " Art historian and critic Adolph Donath, in: Lesser Ury, Seine Stellung in der Modernen deutschen Malerei, Berlin 1922, p. 14.
