"b. New York City, 1856. Pupil of William Morgan and J.G. Brown. First exhibited in the National Academy, 1877. Member of the American Art Union. " Evening. (illustration, page XV.) 'and all the air a solemn stillness holds.' " A crimson-purple, misty sky in which the sun, a glowing crimson disk, is gradually sinking. The water repeats the color of the sky, and the figures, on the bluff add a harmonious interest to the picture. " This picture was greatly admired at the National Academy exhibition this year. A wealthy connoisseur selected it for his gallery early in the exhibition, but the Wall Street upheaval threw it back into the hands of the artists." [P. 36; under illustration appears the note: "from National Academy Notes, 1884."]
