Mountain Scenery, should perhaps be called pallet scenery--every tint in the painter's catalogue is thrown into the cauldron, yet the effect is not witching. It reminds a spectator of a May day procession, every peak seems vieing with its fellow in gaudy robes, and smiling at the sublimity which little mortals attach to high places. It is well for some, that inanimate giants cannot prosecute as others can, for publications tending to bring them into contempt. The figures in the foreground of this picture, should have been placed on the top of one of the mountains, the farther off the better. [P. 132.]
