"(Dutch-Austrian) Venice. Medal 3rd cl. 1876; 2nd cl. 1878, Paris Exposition. A painter of great merit, whose works are exceedingly difficult to get. Tailor's workshop. 21 x 27. three seamstresses occupy the front of the shop. In the deep shadow behind them the tailor himself sits cross-legged on his bench. It will take them a moment to discover him, but he is there, every bit of him. This artist paints with a fearless brush, and the accuracy which comes of close study. The bricks, the faded paint of the woodwork, the faces and garments of the workwomen and the presiding genius behind, are given rare truthfulness, dash and vigor. This is a striking work."
