Date:
1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 7 (Sale info: For Sale).
This artist has won in Europe additional lustre for a name already famous. There is a peculiar idylic charm about his landscapes which gives them a value beyond the most elaborate achievements of mere copyists. His subjects are eminently real, finely analyzed in detail, and treated with firmness and breadth of touch. His coloring is natural, brilliant, and masterly in its relief. The foreground in this picture, with its group of cattle and sheep, is in the artist's best manner. [P. 4.]
