"(Germ.) Munich. Autumn landscape. 50 x 34. This landscape is extraordinarily true to nature. It is full of light and air. The artist runs the whole gamut of color in the browns, ochres and tender gray-greens. The atmosphere of the picture is postively invigorating. It did not even need the deer and their enemy, with his dog and rifle, crouching behind yonder tree, to give it life. It is a canvas of great merit."
