"Marine view," by Musin. This "sea-scape," as it is the fashion to term sea pieces in artistic slang, is not by any means a favorite specimen of European painting. We confess that, though we have seen the sea and the sky in many phases and many lands, we have never yet seen such colors as Musin has chosen to portray. The harbor to the left of the picture is well painted, and the mere drawing of the sea and shipping is good. The waves are also well drawn as to configuration and cresting, but with the coloring we find decided fault. Yet the handling is free and spirited, and there is much to admire. [Pp. 106-107.]
