"These are two beautiful romantic compositions, handled in his best style, after the manner of Rysdael. The sombre and mellow tone of these pictures is perfectly in unison with the season and time of day intended to be expressed; the skies are full of variety and motion; and the ground, trees, and herbage are beautifully touched with spirit and truth. The whole is forcibly expressive of English scenery and atmosphere. - This master's works are much esteemed in England by amateurs and connoisseurs of pictures. He paints with a great deal of spirit, and every part has the look of true nature. He shews that he perfectly understands the principles of the chiaro- scuro, and also perspective; for his distances have always a fine effect, and his masses of light and shadow are distributed with such judgment, and contrasted with such harmony, that the eye and the imagination are equally delighted. Painted by Rysdael Barker, Bath, England." [P. 31; see serial 03260156 for companion piece.]
