Shake Hands, (painting)

Spencer, Lily M.
Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 6
A well known and highly praised work--one of Mrs. Spencer's best. The engraving prefacing this number of the "Journal" will give some idea of the character of this fine painting. It is inimitably humorous, and a perfect triumph of "rendering of the life." It will prove one of the popular among the premiums. [P. 57; illustration noted in this commentary is not included in the copy of the catalogue indexed.]
