The Vanzandt Premiums. (Private Premiums by Dr. William Vanzandt). . . . Original Oil or Water Colors, Study from Animate or Inanimate Nature.--One young lady, Miss Philippine Espenchied, St. Louis, entered two superior paintings, and they were awarded the two premiums offered under this heading. The painting to which was awarded the first premium, seventy-five dollars, was a fine conception and elegantly executed. It was a landscape painting expressive of genius and mechanical execution, rare in one so young, the artiste being only thirteen years of age. She is a pupil of Mr. Platte's Academy, and was taught drawing by F. Hoefel. [Pp. 101-102; excerpted from an explanation of the prize and its patron.]
