"See no. 10. Roses. Mr. Lambdin devotes a great deal of time to the cultivation of fine roses in his garden, in Germantown. he paints roses with a deep love for his subjects, and succeeds in giving his counterfeit roses all the crispness, softness, and delicacy of the originals. They only lack fragrance to deceive one, but they possess an advantage over the real roses, in that they never wither or fade." [P. 32; see serial 03860010 for commentary on artist.]
Pupil of Lambdin.
