The Riding Party, (painting)

Fisher, Alvan
Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 704
Fourteen Oil Paintings. "The Riding Party" is considered the best landscape in the Exhibition; and the best interior is that with the "White Mare and Foal." "The old Oaken Bucket," "Tired of Play," and "Two Boys with a Spaniel," may be mentioned as possessing great merit. "Portraits of three children" is a very beautiful picture; the only prominent fault of which is the defective drawing of the extremities. The whole collection contributed by this artist is excellent, and formed a great ornament of the Exhibition. A Gold Medal. [P. 84; see entries 03610020, 03610021, 03610022, 03610023, and 03610024 for other works noted in this commentary.]
