Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. [not numbered]
"Falls of St. Anthony," by Lewis. Lewis is, we believe, an American artist, hailing from St. Louis, who has settled in Dusseldorf. There is a great amount of merit in this landscape, but the painter has given himself a subject wherein to please is difficult, for to do justice to the original is simply impossible; yet he has conveyed a good idea of the great bodies of falling water, and though the imagination is not so excited as to make us believe that we hear the distant roaring of the falls, still it certainly makes an impression, and the sublimity of the scene is faithfully rendered.
