"Of the pictures not by pupils, some portraits - excellent like- nesses - by Mr. Valentine, are worthy of most honourable men- tion. Perhaps his complexions are overmade. The portraits of Mr. West, and Mr. Scott - which might be known the length of a street distant - have equally vivid complexions; venus, rising from the sea might be content with skin similarly transparent. Perhaps the fact of having adopted this standard complexion, has partly occasioned the picture of Andromecha - where a departure was necessary - to be so needlessly insipid. A resident artist of Halifax; we believe that many with less talent as portrait painters, have arisen to much note, and very profitable employ in older communities."
