Royal family, Sandwich Islands, Oil-Painting, (painting)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 143
Among the specimens of Oil-paintings on Canvas worthy of competing for the Gold Medal, the grand historical portrait production, by the Nahl Brothers, (No. 143), of "the Royal Family of the Sandwich Islands," size, ten by eighteen feet, is deemed most deserving. At the same time the Committee find the works of some other artists, especially the portrait of a little boy by C. Nahl, and that of a citizen of Marysville, by Williams, possessed of high merit, and can only regret that there are not more first-class prizes to award to these finished productions--to bestow a Silver Medal, or second premium upon them, would be paying no compliment. [P. 140; exhibited under heading: "Report of Committee on Paintings." See entries 02600023 and 02600024 for other works noted in this commentary.]
