"(Germ.) Weimar. Bavarian log-runner. 22 x 30. The work of the men, of whom this is a good specimen, is to run 'logs on the flood' and to clear the way when, as often happens, logs get athwart the stream and create a block. It is a dangerous calling. One can see in the firm lines of this face that its owner is equal to any danger. Apart from the perfection of detail and the surprising sureness of touch evinced in this canvas. It is a study of browns and grays, one of the most remarkable pictures in the collection."
