"Attack on an Emigrant Train," by Weimar. This picture is well known in St. Louis, and is an admirable painting, full of force in the forms, but not so happy in the coloring as others by the same artist. Poor Weimar% His fame is purely posthumous, and the pictures he could not sell when living are now eagerly sought for when he is dead. [P. 75.] Composition--Second premium, $20, a picture of Weimar, exhibited by G.M. Harding, St. Louis. [P. 87; exhibited under heading: "PAINTING IN OIL, ORIGINAL."]
Tenth Annual Report of the Saint Louis Agricultural and Mechanical Association. Prepared for Publication by John T. Tracy. St. Louis: Missouri Democrat Book and Job Printing House. 1871.
