Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. [not numbered]
Here were eleven entries by C.B. Carr, all paintings of the smaller size, and evidently from the brush of the same artist, and that one of undoubted genius. The most attractive in the group was a mountain landscape, with a waterfall. It is a scene in the Catskill Mountains--a tumbling stream, foaming down a thick-wooded mountain and in the background the shadowy hills rise up in irregular beauty. The coloring of the foliage is admirable and the shadowed pool in the foreground is depicted with exquisite fidelity. The painting is small, but it is warm with the hues of nature, and the eye lingers lovingly on the scene.
