nied even though there is earnest intention. Yet
he has faiied to arrive at any approximation of na-
ture as it is visibie to the majority of eyes, and his
vaiues seemed far away from the truth, whiie the
coior ended by being aggressiveiy insistent. W. E.
Schoheld's PEfwter OM was sureiy power-
fuiiy and honestly attacked in a broad and convinc-
ing manner, an exceilent composition resuiting.
Frederick J. Waugh's was unfortunateiy of
the same texture, throughout, so that the skv seemed
as heavy and as tangibie as the massive rocks in the
foreground; but, on the contrary, his tAe -Bcje <?/
/Ae C/f^, with its swirling water, distant biliows and
crags against which the waters beat, was wholiy
satisfactory, a strong, thoughtful and inteiiigent
performance that did him ample credit and was one
of the best marines recentiy shown in this country.

This, too, was broadly ren-
dered, but the treatment of
light on surfaces was par-
ticularly fine and teiling,
the forms understood, and,
in short, the picture weii
worth a long examination.
One was puiled up suddeniy
by crape on the late Benja-
min C. Porter's admirabie
portrait of Mrs. Van Nor-
den, standing, in equestrian
costume, by the side of her
horse. The iamented artist
oniy passed away within
the year. Buy&rry
Ff&f, by AUen B. Taiicott,
another of the men whose
iabors have ceased in death,
was here as weii.
The Thomas B. Proctor
prize for the best portrait
was awarded to Charies
Noei Fiagg, for his iikeness
of the scuiptor, Paui Way-
iand Bartiett, a vigorous
work of somewhat fiam-
bovant coior, but of free-
dom in the painting and
unquestioned dexterity.
Again Aibert L. Groii had
a memory of his sojourn in
the western country with a
iarge AMMMg' AAower
Arfzowu, wherein he ob-
tained something of the
grandeur of the land and
much of the coior sentiment of that picturesque
country. If other men seemed to have painted
more important marines than Mr. Woodbury, who
so long has been identihed with the best in an
ocean way, we had as a compensation his iittie
But/rerx, which was snappy, exhiiarating, fuil of
ozone and the gaiety of the summer.
A viriie portrait by J. Alden Weir and a group
of two chiidren by Ceciiia Beaux, not so viriie,
might have been remarked, and in his picture of
TAcIFAur/ Jerome Myers had another
of his East Side compositions that disciosed not
aione inteiligent observation but deep sympathy
with these people. Wiiiiam M. Chase once more
had a stili iife of pM/z, that he paints with such
authority, and which have iong since been re-
marked by his brother painters as among the best
