"b. New York. Member of the National Academy of Design, American Water-Color Society, and Society of American Artists. elected National Academician, 1869. " La Farge goes to art with earnest devotion, and an ambition for its highest walks, bringing to the American school depth of feeling, subtlety of perception, and a magnificent tone of coloring, united to a fervant imagination which bestows upon the humblest object a portion of his inmost life. His landscapes are gems of imaginative, suggestive, and delicate vital treatment, not pantheistic in sentiment, although the soul of natiure breathes in them. - Jarves, Art Idea." [P. 31.]
