Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 100
No. 100 is a copy from No. 56, a View in Jamaica.--No. 56 is a picture in which outline and tint seem intended to convey a feeling of great solitude. At the head of the little bay, or arm, of an ornamented tomb appears; rocks, not high enough to give the energy which as it were ennobles solitude; but bold and gloomy, rise above the tomb. The dark ledge goes shelving off to some distance, forming a little head land to the bay; and throwing its shade on the land and water, shrouds all within the shade of landscape . . . No. 100 is more lonely, but less solitary than 56. . . . [P. 131-132.]
