"No definite information concerning this artist is at hand. there is something about this picture that is suggestive of one of Corot's very good pictures - not the ordinary Corot of doubtful authenticity, so common in American collections. The sunset glow in the luminous sky, the broadly-painted landscape, the exquisite effect of distance, and the shining water reflecting the bright sky, contribute to produce one of the most poetic and pleasing of all the landscapes exhibited this year."
