"b. New York. Pupil of the National Academy of Design, New York. First exhibited in the National Academy in 1879. Third Hallgarten prize in the National Academy exhibition of this year. " A young man of remarkable talent. Keenly perceiving the facts of nature, and seeing beyond the bare facts with a wonderful ability to reproduce what he sees as he sees it, and to convey to the spectator all of the impressions which come to him, Mr. Baker gives promise of becoming one of the greatest landscape painters of the time. His pictures already are attracting wide attention." [P. 42.]
