"Rocky Glen and Waterfall." This is a very pleasant landscape. A blustering little torrent is represented leaping from rock to rock, and falling into a sullen pool at bottom. On each side are rocks and masses of creepers and foliage, whose colors are vivid with the hues of the fall. The tints of the dying leaves are particularly well rendered, some of them being as brilliant as a ruby, or, in other words, as brilliant as nature. The atmosphere, too, is well conceived; one sees instinctively that it is a cold, clear day in autumn, and the blue is therefore intense, and the drawing of the outlines sharp. [P. 108.]
