"The Wreckers," by the same. Another sea-scape, representing a boat's crew trying to pass a hawser around the floating fragments of some wreck. There is exactly the same fault in this picture. The broken water and foam around the wreck are painted in colors that would make us imagine that Musin painted the sea from his imagination, and had never seen its emerald waters and its foamy crests, white and soft as carded wool--if Mr. Longfellow will forgive us for the theft. [P. 107; see entry 02550083 for other work noted in this commentary, and entry 02550044 for related commentary.]
