We heard much praise lavished upon the "Dying Camel." It is certainly a striking little picture. "A dreary desert scene, half hidden in a yellow haze;" in the foreground, the high, gaunt form of a dying camel is the prominent object. The travel-worn animal has fallen, overcome by heat and toil, and the vultures of the desert are hovering near. The arid, burning desolation of the scene, the blaze of sunlight, the retreating party of Arabs, and the other features of the picture, are all painted with freeness and force of coloring. [P. 109.]
