Copper engraving. 1st premium. Pl. $30. [P. 193.] Engraving on Copper Plate--M.C. Osborn, of Sacramento--first premium: "Wong Mooey."--This miniature portrait of the well-known Chinese preacher, by the above name, has the merit of being an admirable likeness. It appears, however, defective in vigor, but this possibly may be attributable to a desire on the part of the artist to preserve the expressionless characteristic of the Mongolian physiognomy. If so, he has succeeded admirably by producing that softness of effect which we sometimes see resulting from stippling, and which is so beautifully adapted to rounding the cheeks and other swelling parts of the human figure, especially in drawings of children.
