"See no. 214. Harry Chase's 'battery park, New York,' is a painting that takes one out of doors and makes him feel the wind and chill of an April day. For atmospheric quality and the expression of motion in the sky and water, the picture is remarkable; moreover, it has a value as a clearly recognizable portrait of an interesting locality. - the Art Union, April, 1884."
