BASSO RELIEVO in MARBLE, BRONZE, &c. 1st Premium, Diploma and $25; 2d Premium, Medal. A likeness of Colonel BENTON cast in Bronze by Mr. Peter Crummen, took the first premium. This is said to be the first casting of the kind in bronze ever attempted in St. Louis, and is highly creditable to the artist. The well known features of the Missouri Senator are strikingly portrayed. The cast was taken, we believe, after the remains of Col. Benton were brought on from Washington; the face is not so full as is generally found in his portraits, but the resemblance is good and the execution vigorous. In addition to awarding the first premium, the committee bestowed upon it high commendation. [Pp. 97-98.]
