Drawing. 2d premium. $5. [P. 192.] Second premium. The large fancy sketch of a mountain rivulet shows great boldness and freedom of hand, approximating in execution some of the masterly sketches to be seen in Harding's works. The chief merit in pencil drawing, lies in accomplishing the greatest effect with the least labor; and we discover in most of the specimens exhibited by this artist, which we have scrutinized, that he has aimed at acting out this idea.
