LONDON.—The exhibition of the Society
of Oil Painters contains a larger number
than usual of pictures which are interest-
ing both in subject and treatment. It is
especially strong in landscapes and paintings of
open-air subjects. The most notable of these are
Mr. D. Y. Cameron's strong and dignified Norman
Castle; Mr. J. Coutts Michie's luminous note of
colour, Home from Pasture; Mr. J. S. Hill's Harlech,
and A Wood by the Sea, both of which are finely
composed and broadly handled; Mr. Leslie Thom-
son's At Lake, near Poole, a masterly study of
Nature, and his more subtle arrangement, in delicate
tones of grey-blue and golden yellow, which he calls
Summer; Sir George Reid's Durham; and Mr.

Hughes Stanton's masculine canvas, Poole Harbour
from Studland, Dorset; and there are also admir-
able contributions from Mr. Moffat Lindner, Mr. A.
G. Bell, Mr. W. Llewellyn, Mr. F. F. Foottet, and
Mr. J. Aumonier. Among the figure pictures
special attention is due to Sir J. D. Linton's The
Casket Scene from "The Merchant of Venice" ; to
the delightfully idealised rustic figure, Jill, by

Mr. G. F. Watts ; to the pretty study of a woman's
head, A Spanish Belle, by Mr. Melton Fisher; to
the costume pieces, When Thieves Fall Out, and
A Song, by Mr. Talbot Hughes ; and The Fishwife,
by Mr. Edgar Bundy ; to Mr. Arthur Rackham's
brilliant fantasy, Rumpelstiltskin ; to the exquisite
study of figures in the open air, Sunshine and
Wind, by Mr. Charles Sims ; and to Mr. St. George
Hare's accomplished subject-pictures, His First
Letter, His Last Letter, and Maids who Love the
Moon.

A new scheme of decoration has just been
carried out in the galleries of the Royal Society of
British Artists, and as a consequence the exhibition
now open has a much more attractive appearance
than any of those by which it has been preceded
during recent years. The collection brought to-
gether is, moreover, rather above the average ; it
includes much that does the Society ample credit,
and it is pleasantly varied. One of the most
remarkable canvases in the show is Mr. F. F.
Foottet's decorative landscape, a view of the India
Office building from St. James's Park ; and there
is true originality in his fanciful composition To
Morning. Mr. G. C. Haite's Queen Victoria's
Jubilee, iSqj, is a brilliant record of a remarkable
