"(see no. 90.) A forest sanctuary is a charming painting by Carl C. Brenner, of this city. It depicts the interior of a beech forest, with a stream coming into the foreground through an irregular course over broken moss-covered rocks. Mr. Brenner found the subject for this picture in Hancock County, this state. It is a faithful portrayal of a late afternoon in mid summer. - Louisville Courier-Journal."
