The little picture by Miss Josephine McKellops, to which was awarded the first premium for the best amateur painting of animals in oil, is remarkably well executed. partition, and there is a clearness and faithfulness in the details which few professional artists can surpass. The grain and knots in the wood are colored with the utmost exactitude, and it is amusing to hear the certainty expressed by many of the visitors that it is "painted on wood." This and other works, principally of a similar character, which we have seen from the easel of this young lady, are remarkable, and indicate not merely that she possesses the "accomplishment" of producing pretty pictures, which many girls acquire who have educational advantages, but that she is gifted with that rare and delicate insight into the visible harmonies of nature which is the essential element of artistic genius, and which, unless it is born with us, we can never acquire.
