2. "Maple Leaves," by Ellen Robbins. An exquisite specimen of Miss Robbins' ability. Miss Robbins is an "eleve" of the New England School of Design, and enjoys an enviable reputation, both at home and abroad, particularly in England, for her truthful and beautiful delineations, in water-colors, of the birds, flowers, insects, ferns, and autumn leaves of the United States. To her facile and indefatigable brush we are indebted for the prototypes of the beautiful chromos of those subjects issued by Prang & Co. [P. 64; exhibited under heading: "Water-Colors."]
