Mrs. Peters, 144 Pine Street, St. Louis, exhibited a LANDSCAPE, by Paul Weber of Philadelphia. This was an exquisite painting; it represented a scene of serene and quiet beauty--the waters of a lake, or mountain stream, sleeping in the rays of the sunlight, or beneath the shadows of the surrounding hills. The effect of the sun-light upon the waters was extremely beautiful. It lit them up and rendered them transparent to the bottom, and the contrast between them and the waters that slumbered in the shade was a rare exhibition of the painter's skill. All the details of the scenery were highly finished; the foliage, the shrubbery, the distant mountains, and the smallest figures, were accurately drawn, colored and elaborated. By many, it was pronounced the gem of the Exhibition. [P. 107.]
