Water color painting. 2d premium. $5. [P. 192.] Painting in Water Colors.--Nahl Brothers, San Francisco, "Immigrants attacked by Indians"--second premium. These versatile artists have here executed a little colored drawing in their happiest sketchy style. The conception grasps all the imaginable horrors of such a scene; even the brute oxen appear writhing under the contemplation of the cruel carnage. The female figure introduced so prominently in the composition, gives a deep interest and pathos to the subject, and testifies to the relentless and merciless warfare of savage life, which spares neither women or children. Our revolting feelings do not permit us to dwell on the unhappily too truthful picture, and we turn from this example of the "convulsive school" with horror. [P. 281.]
