Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 126
Sunset on the North West Arm--reminds strongly of the tints in composition ornaments from mantle pieces. It has the faults of non character mentioned of 97, without its redeeming harmony of colouring. Every chocolate colour streak in the sky, and in the water; each rosy blush, and deep green shade, seems nearly as independent of blending and tint, as if they were patches taken from every hour in the day to make a mosaic work sunset. The glorious orb of day, resembles a dot of putty, and his most direct beam seems most opaque. [P. 132.]
