This pleasing artist is a native of France, and is believed to be now living. The subjects of his pictures are Landscapes and Cattle; he is called the French Paul Potter, from his having studied the works and painted many of his pictures after the style of that great master. DESCRIPTION. This is a very pleasing little landscape; in the fore-ground, on the bank of a river is a group of three figures; just beyond on the right, is a cottage sheltered by a tree, and two cows; a little to the left is another cow, and a female carrying a pail of water which she has just taken from the river; on the extreme left is an old tower built of bricks, painted with all the minuteness of vander Heyden; every brick might be counted, the effect of the sun dispersing the dark clouds after a shower of rain, is admirably managed; the picture throughout is highly finished and in a clear tone of colour. [Pp. 35-36.]
