Evening Prayer, (painting)

Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 3 (Sale info: For Sale).
"Evening Prayer" is an admirable rendering of the tender, chastening spirit of that hour of eventide which most of all seems to draw the heart into communion with the Infinite. The subject is a favorite one with poets and painters, and is too often degraded to the purposes of a trivial sentimentalism. the present artist has treated it with a truly profound earnestness and sincerity, and this, in connection with the very excellent execution of the picture, serve to make it "a thing of beauty" which, could we always have it near us, would truly prove "a joy forever." [P. 3.]
