Prize No. 6. CONSTANT MAYER's Celebrated Painting, entitled "Recognition." Valued at Five Thousand Dollars. A large Historical Work--the Story of a Battle-field. Size about 8 by 12 feet. Now Exhibiting by the Association at St. Louis. An effective and touching episode of the late fearful struggle in our own country. One brother finds another dying, as night is gathering over the battle-field. They have joined different sides in the contest, and the dramatic power of the situation, with its tearful sublimity, is as forcibly as it is simply expressed. Such a painting as this must always stir our feelings with a throb of sympathy, while it melts us to pity and tenderness. [P. 6.]
