5. "On the War Path," by Charles Wimar. A warm, glowing picture, in this much lamented artist's best style of depicting savage life. "The forms of the horse and rider, the posture of the latter as he bends forward, the effect of the wind made visible in both, in the mane of the horse, the streamer of the rider's lance and his attire, the wide waste of prairie, and the quiet depth of the cloudless sky, against which the forms are brought out in bold relief, all help to constitute a most suggestive and charming picture. The coloring is natural, and, in its way, the picture is a genuine little gem of art." "Missouri Republican," Oct. 4, 1868. [P. 61; exhibited under heading: "Paintings."]
Ninth Annual Report of the Saint Louis Agricultural and Mechanical Association. Prepared for Publication by Maj. Geo. W. Gilson. St. Louis: Missouri Democrat Book and Job Printing House. 1871.
