"Crowning Titania Queen of the Fairies," one of Mrs. Brown's collection, was to the lover of the weird, an attractive painting. In a lonesome retreat in the deep woods, the fairies dance round their crowned queen. A glimmering, ghastly light illumines the centre of the picture, and the elfish forms are vaguely seen; the rest is covered in deep gloom. The painting is highly imaginative, and is evidently the work of an accomplished artist. [P. 105.]
