The landscape in oil, by an amateur, which took the first premium, is a small picture by Patterson entered by Mr. Warner. The subject is a placid lake shadowed by mountains in the background with a pretty piece of level land in the fore-ground and some trees. For an amateur, it is quite a good little work, with a trifle too much blueness, however, in water and perspective. [P. 46.] Landscape in Oil by Amateur.--First premium, diploma and $50; E.S.
