The winter scene after Wickenberg, contributed by J.B. Brown, claims particular attention for qualities which too few modern paintings possess. We refer to the rendering of the true texture of things represented. In the picture alluded to, it is but necessary to point out the hard, crystalline character of the ice in the foreground, as compared with the yielding snow, to fully illustrate the idea. It will be found that the entire work has extraordinary merits in this respect. [P. 27; exhibited under heading: "Works of Non-Resident Artists."]
