Lessing's landscapes are celebrated. It is rarely that an artist excels equally in figure, in animals, and in landscape. This honor attaches to the great painter of the "Martyrdom of Huss." The distances are peculiarly fine in this work, and the rocks are so reproduced that even Ruskin might find geology in them. The sky is a leading feature of the picture. [P. 20.]
