Greenough, John
Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 1157
The Committee, in speaking of this most elaborate work, must say, they consider that the artist has based his picture on an unnatural tone of color; but it has, in many respects, merits of a very high order. The effects of light are almost magical, too much praise cannot be bestowed on the wonderfully-high finish, unless it may be thought to have produced a want of mass in the foliage. The perspective is fine, the water beautifully managed; and, although the Committee have felt bound to state some objections, they feel it to be their duty, at the same time, to express their admiration of this picture. Silver Medal. [P. 35.]
