Exhibition Catalogs
Date:
1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 140
St. Alban's Cathedral, has an exquisitely drawn, and coloured sky; representing a squall. The Cathedral tower catching a sudden gleam, beautifully contrasts the more solemn tints of the atmosphere. The foreground is a line of shrubbery well coloured, and effective without glaring attempts at making it so. It is altogether a simple, characteristic, and superior composition; and in its expression and colouring well contrasts the brilliant picture beneath which it is suspended. [P. 132.]
Exhibition of Pictures at Dalhousie College. February 11, 1830.
