"The Gleaners," by P. Martin, exhibited by Pettes & Leathe. Three girls in a reaped harvest field, gleaning; one is stooping, picking up; another is standing up, with face partially turned towards the background; and the third, a little one, with the full face displayed, holds her sister's apron, with two red poppies in the other hand. An old country group of rural children, full of animation. The artist only hastily touched in the landscape, as if indifferent to it, but cast a rich light on the three children, and worked out their forms with the utmost care. The face of the little maiden, with its blue eyes and rosy cheeks, and the loose yellow hair, are softly yet most naturally colored. The whole picture indicates the bold, free style and correct eye of a gifted painter. [P. 79.]
