Oil Painting, by Nahl Bros. & Dickman. The best oil painting in the exhibition. Awarded a silver medal. This painting deserves especial mention for its exquisite drawing and color, and for the life-like impatience of the horse, whose superficial anatomy is delineated in a manner evincing long and careful study. The rider is a graceful-looking horseman, correctly costumed, and beautifully painted. [P. 66.]
