Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. [not numbered]
Next comes the photographic display of Boehl & Koenig, which includes some fine views of the Court House, Mr. Sharp's residence, and other edifices in the city. The three frames in this display which attract the most attention are those containing small landscapes with natural colors vividly tinted in. Views taken in Shaw's Garden are among the subjects chosen, and the green coloring of the grass and foliage, and also the mingling of flower-dyes, are worked out with a brilliancy and a correctness in the minutest details that is really astonishing, and grows more so when magnified with the aid of glasses. Lafayette Park scenes are also reproduced with a freshness and fidelity that could not be equaled in oils within the same space. [P. 74; see entries 02570016, 02570017, 02570018, 02570019, and 02570020 for other works noted in this commentary, and entry 02570001 for related commentary.]
