Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 48
This is a painting which at once arrests attention, and challenges criticism. By connoisseurs it is pronounced one of the best landscapes in this country. The "Albion" remarked:--"The treatment is masterly. The aerial perspective; the vapor from the falling water; the quiet tone of the foreground; the sense of solitude befitting the scene despite Bruin; and a pathway ruining [sic] upward by the stream--here is a combination of excellence that makes up a very perfect picture." The two bears--one coming down the rocky pathway, the other lying down, licking his paws--add to the feeling of loneliness and grandeur which pervades the scene. American landscape painters, who are forever seeking after "startling effects," through chunks of color, should study for a while this work, and learn that the truest effects are, after all, produced by a patient elaboration.
