THE WORK
OF CLAUDE
HAYES. BY
MRS.PERCY LEAKE.

Claude Hayes was a
sailor at twenty one years
of age, at twenty-five he
was an artist exhibiting at
many exhibitions. From a
sailor's life to a pastoral
scene is a far cry, and he
who can go from one to
the other and remain him-
self under the varying cir-
cumstances attracts the
interest and sympathy of
the average man.

There is something

qualities which are so
essential to realistic land-
scape painting. It is doubt-
ful whether the painter
could make a picture in
which the balance of masses,
the composition, did not
unconsciously assume the
disposition of conscious
design, so that it is the
more curious that this
instinctive tendency to
decoration in no case has
led the painter away from
that worship of accidental
effects or from his attempts
to render faithfully the
mysteries of winter atmo-
sphere ; and it has not
altered the humility of his
attitude as a painter towards
nature. The beauties of the
particular phases of nature
that he has cared most to
reveal are so changeable
and various that he has re-
turned to them over and
over again in his art; but
in every fresh canvas he
has advanced further in
his knowledge of nature
and of the resources of
colour. "nuit" by w. pourwit
