The Smoker, (painting)

Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 72
No painter of our time has attained as great a reputation as Meissonnier, or, during his life, such extraordinary prices for his pictures. These are sold a long while before they are finished, and when they are exposed at the French Salon, they become the most curious point of attraction for the crowds of connoisseurs. One of this artist's works, known as the "Cavalry Charge," was sold for $60,000, and Mr. A.T. Stewart has recently given $20,000 for a picture not more minutely finished than this in the Cincinnati Exposition. It is seldom that a picture by Meissonnier is to be seen in this country. [P. 12.]
