3. "Simsbury" (Connecticut meadows), by A.D. Shattuck, National Academician. A simple truth, beatuifully expressed. Nature eloquent in repose. Glorious in atmosphere and perspective, and manipulated with that exquisite care for which this poet-artist is so proverbial and unequaled. Nothing lovelier or more technically perfect can be found in the range of American art. [P. 60; exhibited under heading: "Paintings."]
