Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 112
A Night Scene, is a pleasing free sketch, rather coarsely executed; and of too regular a design. Water flows through the centre, the land on each side curves regularly out, and the sides nearly meet like ends of semi-circles in the centre distance; the clouds accomodate themselves to the land in similar lines; the moon appears in a most effective place; and a few boats also in the centre, most obligingly add to the picturesque by just appearing in the moonbeam's track.
