The German critics pronounced this a grand work, and few may gainsay their judgment. It is impressive as a whole, while in detail it is a perfect series of pictures. The trees, the rocks, the rushing waters, the lonely log-house, the clouds, are each wrought with a distinctiveness which, considering the size of the whole, is wonderful. It is pronounced one of the most valuable landscapes--perhaps it is the most valuable--in the collection. It is not an unprofitable or uninteresting study to compare these landscapes with some in other collections, which must have attracted attention. The pre-eminence of the Dusseldorf masters must be conceded. [P. 23.]
