to delight his many admirers with fresh renderings
of the familiar home scenery. His North Ford

the collection here brought together. The time is
past when the arrogant claims of one particular
branch of art could place the rest under a sort
of stigma, as though the pursuit of them were
something less honourable than that of picture
painting. From a show such as the one under
notice it is possible to trace the almost imper-
