His pictures contain all the detail that quality can possibly demand, and yet sufficient breadth to satisfy any but the most ultra impressionist. He paints pictures and effects that we all have seen, and have delighted in seeing, in nature. His pictures speak to us as poetically and as truthfully as nature herself speaks. - Louisville Spectator. " Through the willows. (illustration, page XVI.) An effect in early autumn; bright sky and excellent realization of distance. Trees carefully studied, and painted literally yet broadly. - National Academy Notes, 1884."
