Member of the American Art Union. " Casilear's pictures, when sent from the easel, are as harmonious as poems, and it is this perfect serenity in their handling which is so attractive to connoisseurs. - Art Journal. " Bringing the cows home. The first picture is a bright landscape by J.W. Casilear; a girl driving some cows along a path coming out of some woods. There is a very pleasing view down the pathway, in the shadow of the trees, the distance and atmospheric effect being well realized. - The Art Union, January, 1884." [P. 47.]
