This artist, moreover, shows a rare reticence in the exercise of technical skill; . . . in this, and other slight characteristics, the true artist is revealed; the master, not the slave, of form, color, and textural effect. - Bayard Taylor, in New York Tribune, April 7, 1877. " A New York Arab. A most characteristic study of one of a large class of prospective New York citizens, painted in a manner that strongly suggests some of the pictures by Murillo - notably those in the old Pinakothek, in Munich."
