" Rarely do we see one of his landscapes without finding there a picturesque effect or a subtle meaning indicative of the rarest skill and the most absolute genius. - Tuckerman, Book of the Artists. " There is ever perceptible in his works imagination, feeling, and technical instinct of a high order. - Jarves, Art Idea. " A man who has been in intense earnest from the day he began to paint. His art has been his life, the center of his thoughts and dreams, influenced by the exaltation and depression of his moods, but always the fervid utterance of one impelled to deliver his message by the fullness of his heart. - J.R.W.
