"(Swede.) Gothenburg. Medal 3rd cl., Paris Salon, 1879. waiting for the boats. 18 x 14. Mother and child are looking seaward for the return of the fishing boats on one of which husband and father is at work. The little one in the mother's arms is pointing them out. Into this picture, painted almost wholly in gray tints, the artist has contrived to throw an extraordinary amount of light and breeze. That long, cold stretch of strand is a perfect piece of perspective painting, and is fully equalled in point of merit by those luminous masses of gray clouds."
