"Innocence," a chromo exhibited by Gast. We have always dissented to the metaphorical design. It is the nearly nude form of a rosy girl symbolizing a Hebe rather than a moral principle. The skin-coloring is undoubtedly good. [P. 85.] Chromo-Lithography.--The committee recommend honorable mention to John Gast, St. Louis. [P. 89; exhibited under heading: "DRAWINGS, ENGRAVINGS, ETC."]
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.
