"See no. 113. This is certainly one of the finest pictures Mr. Quartley has painted, and it is one of the finest expressions of moonlight that anyone has painted. The sky at the left of the Spectator is bright and luminous, while on the right the clouds have gathered, hiding the horizon and middle distance in a deep, mysterious darkness, out of which a vessel is coming into the foreground. There is room for the exercise of imagination in the contemplation of this picture, which is one that can be seen and enjoyed again and again." [P. 56; see serial 03860113 for commentary on artist.]
