Mr. Church has painted several views of the Falls of Niagara. This picture is the first, and it is believed, the best of them all. This point of view, which is on the Canada side, gives that fine sight in the foreground, of swift running water, the rapids stretching far away up the river, the fall and foam of the ponderous mass of water, and that wondrous effect of rainbow, which is formed from the rising mist of the fall. It is this picture, celebrated in Europe and America, which first gave Church his great reputation. [P. 21.]
