"Holland Lady of the Fifteenth Century, A", (painting)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. [not numbered]
For the best specimens of Oil Paintings, they must award the premium to C. Nahl, of San Francisco. Two pictures are exhibited by him, differing entirely in style, yet both possessing marked excellencies. One is "A Holland Lady of the Fifteenth Century," in a neat costume. The painting is elaborately finished, and very highly colored, perhaps too much so for those whose taste has been formed on the model of the more severe and chastened coloring of the old masters. It is in the style of the modern French school. [P. 46.] Best specimens of oil painting, framed diploma and $10; C. Nahl, San Francisco (for "Holland Lady"). [P. 51.]
