"48 x 62. 'At the foot of yonder beech.' - Gray. The peculiar fidelity and sentiment of nature with which Mr. Durand always depicts trees is eloquently manifest in this picture. The whole scenic expression is harmonious, tender and true. One of Mr. Durand's best pictures." [Price and buyer noted in contemporary hand. In the same hand is noted: "spirited bidding much competition."]
