"See no. 333. A most charming landscape. Mr. Price has thus written of it in the age: 'the foreground is the rocky bed of a creek; broad and broken ledges of rock, over which flows a scattering stream, collected, near the Spectator, into a wide and shaded pool. The banks recede in the near perspective; a willow tree droops over and kisses the clear water; there are woods to the right and left, and the background, in the sunnier and more cheerful hue of day, is expansive, fresh and inviting, with a suggestion of distance. The picture has great depth of atmosphere, and the management of light and shadow is admirable. It is a fixing on canvas of one of the transient glories of nature.'" [P. 78; see serial 03860333 for commentary on artist.]
