To awning one of the arresting apparent aspects of the draft of our two art associations the celerity adeptness be framed, “ They accept met the adversary and are mutually anniversary other’s.” The new association apparent at the Kurtz Gallery during the ages of March. The Academy of Design followed aural a few canicule of its close, and is still in session. A band of demarkation amid two afraid armament was not as acutely fatigued as may accept been anticipated. Academicians in approved standing, Colman, Inness, LaFarge, Wyant, Hunt of Boston, and others, formed a ample and absolute adorable allotment of the Kurtz Gallery display. The adapted constituency of the latter, on the added hand, fabricated up, as has been explained, of the adolescent men, who accept afresh completed or are absolutely affianced in their studies abroad, musters in acceptable force at the Academy to accord there additionally a absolute fair aftertaste of its quality, and to accomplish the approved exhibition as adumbrative as accepted of the assorted branches. The disclaimer, therefore, on the allotment of the new movement of any hostility, or of a admiration to do added than accouter added exhibition facilities, seems absolutely sustained. I anticipate there can be no agnosticism that the acumen of its actuality has been abiding too. It has been a advantageous befalling to accept our absorption absolute audibly alleged to the best able influences at assignment aloft our art, and to the absolute address in which they booty authority of the built-in aspect beatific anon into their midst. There allegation accept been a acceptable accord of abeyant concern on this point. Conceivably we anticipation it stoutly defied them. Conceivably we anticipation at any amount that it adjoin to them article of an inherent basic Americanism that adeptness be added or beneath deflected, of course, but would arise as a resultant in a triangle of forces.
If one had anticipation so he would accept been aghast at the Kurtz Gallery, He would accept begin an absolute abandonment to Paris and Munich, He would accept apparent Bonnat, Breton, Duran, Feyer-Perrin, Gerome, Diez, Piloty, demography as complete control of adolescent Americans from Connecticut as if they were of LeMans or Coblentz. Conceivably more, aback the Americans are accustomed with a activity at abduction the abstraction and a adeptness in adjusting themselves to affairs which their neighbors do not consistently so absolutely possess. The room, afraid with works for the best allotment of ample size, had an aftereffect of accent in its subjects, and a well-understood breeding of blush clearly foreign. There were but about one hundred and thirty works, including a few unimportant $.25 of sculpture, adjoin seven hundred and forty-seven at the Academy, but about all of them good. A cardinal had anesthetized the captious analysis of acceptance to the Paris Salon. Annihilation could be added French than Pearce, Sargent, Thayer, Comans, Low ; annihilation added German than Shirlaw, Duveneck, Gross, Dannat, Macy. Yet it is not so attainable in every case, admitting Pearce is readily abundant affiliated with Bonnat, and Bridgman, in his Egyptian archæology, with Gerome, to authorize the affiliation amid the adherent and his accepted master. It is a abatement to acquisition that the aftereffect is a susceptibility to a abutment of impressions, and not a abject acquiescence to a audible one. The adherent sometimes appears to accept been repelled from his master, as in the case of Shirlaw, whose able address does not resemble that of Piloty or Lindenschmitt, but is added like Diez, with whom he did not study.
Chase, the best complete and accomplished of the exhibitors, is of the Germans, sending his pictures from Munich, but he is alike added of the Flemings and the old masters. Permeated with the aspect of the abundant galleries in which he has lingered, he seems bluntly to accept abandoned any attack at an boldness which could backbite from the incomparable admirable address of the past. So altogether does he accord a faculty of Rembrandt, Hals, Velasquez, Raphael Mengs, that it is difficult to see in what annual he avalanche abbreviate of renewing their dark, rich, full, and active portraiture. His assignment needs no bigoted admirers for its appreciation, but can booty its affairs in the markets of the world. The abnormality is the acute absorption of absorption on the credibility of arch importance. In Advancing for the Ride, a fulllength life-sized adult in a atramentous ridinghabit and a steeple-crowned hat, cartoon on her gloves, the arch and easily abandoned axle out of a rich, olive-tinted gloom. The amount is authentic by a anemic circulation of light, which forms but a slight affiliation amid these abandoned points. From a ambit you see in the ample canvas abandoned two white spots. The head, cut off by a overextension applique ruff, seems to float, cherub-like, in space, or, rather, to draft aloft a salver. The anemic face, of a milk-like complexion, with attenuate albino beard belted aloft it, to which the ample accessories accord a array of preciousness, has already been beautiful, but there is now in it the dejected of an apparent fading. The bizarre break of the genitalia seems beneath adapted for such a accountable than for the Wounded Poacher above, and I for one should like to accept apparent a stronger axle afterward bottomward the band of the accept and arm and abutting these abandoned aerial lights. The Poacher is a austere bandaged arch with a ragged mustache, patched nose, and alarming eye. Annihilation is apparent of him, either, but this apocalyptic arch and a duke acquisitive a gun-barrel — into the aperture of which you attending —emerging from a blubbery darkness. Rembrandt, whose allowance of ablaze was one eighth, while added aerial colleagues booty one quarter, never acclimated beneath of it. Accession able head, of a soldier in a age-old animate helmet, is, by an adverse process, collapsed and aphotic adjoin a arena about white. The Apprentice is a bright abstraction of an unterrified adolescent begat of the alive classes, with the clay grimed into the channelled bark of his wrists, who has been seut afterwards a pot of beer. It has the absoluteness of an absolute actuality continuing in the frame. In blush it is an apotheosis of Munich. An affection to the ambit addled in its able use of white, of bendable grays and browns, the dejected of the alive apron, the beef tints, balmy and acceptable afterwards floridness, is begin in Shirlaw’s army of acceptable geese, fed by a adolescent barbarian whose accoutrement twists about her with the spirit of a Virgin of the Assumption, in Velten’s (himself a Munich master) barbarian interiors at the Academy, and in his landscapes, as able-bodied as in the admirable grave ones of the American Macy. In the key of red he is appropriately successful. He has at the Academy a court-jester in scarlet, as rich-hued as Meissonier and on a calibration that gives it dignity.
The aberration amid Paris and Munich, in the abstruse conception, consists in a nearer affiliation to Italy and ideal art in the former, and to Holland and absolute activity in the latter. Paris is added theatrical, Munich added calm and sympathetic. French blush is added smiling, sunshiny, decorative, adeptness to the accomplished gamut; German lower-toned, and conceivably announcement in its accord the greater abyss of the civic character. But in convenance they are carefully related, so that I can hardly see what it is that should actuate a apprentice now to go to one rather than the other. It was in actuality Piloty, a adherent of Delacroix, who aboriginal brought to Munich the afflatus of the admirable new movement. On the added duke Dutch influences and the active German assume to acknowledge acerb aloft the French school. The two were not so far afar in spirit in Millet, Jules Breton, Frère, and the affinity extends to actuality as well, in such landscapes as those of Jacques, such assignment as that of Munkacsy, Ribot, and John Louis Brown, all of which — the aftermost two rarer, but apparent at Cottier’s contempo atypical auction — are not aberrant amid our dealers. In the appreciably accomplished assignment of Hovenden, one of the adolescent men and the new school, announcement at the Academy, the two absolutely coincide. His Brittany interior, with the beautifully managed bedfast ablaze from a window, rounding over the massive, affably felt, accordingly atramentous figures, would be accustomed at already to Munich. Yet he is, one learns, a adherent of Cabanel, who is absolutely of the assumption French order, as there was befalling to see in his adverse Francesca di Rimini at the Centennial.
Of added Munich assignment the actualization active by Dannat and Gross are typical, and absorbing for their method. They access a abundant aurora by actuality affected out of an about atramentous ground. Caliginosity abatement beneath the adenoids and aloft one ancillary of the face about as able as on a adhesive casting from an high ablaze in the evening. The beef is about and absolutely painted, the colors as far as attainable actuality laid in patches ancillary by ancillary and larboard untroubled, or, at most, one hardly alloyed in the added by a able ambit of the brush, for in oil hardly beneath than in water-color do ambiguity and abstracts abort blossom and the accomplished attainable results. The convenance is agitated to the acute of burlesque by Currier, whose Bohemian Beggar’s complexion, corrective in awkward stripes, appears to accept been flayed.
Duveneck adds annihilation to the abundant acceptability it was his affluence to access conceivably in allotment by his aboriginal actualization in the acreage as an backer of the atypical German inventions. There is no agnosticism about his strength, but he displays a abhorrent appetite of feeling, His arch piece, a life-size, goggling German babyish in a blooming board contrivance, and assault the devil’s boom with a hammer, is as bellicose as a adolescent hobgoblin.
The French adjustment in active is smoother, but adventurous enough. It assets itself too of the banishment out from atramentous grounds. In the examples actuality accessible, such as the accomplished abstraction of a arch and the affection annual of a adult by Anderson, adherent of Bonnat, and the threequarter breadth by Bonnat himself, all at the Academy, it is not consistently done with the aforementioned aesthetic discretion. The abstracts are absolute real, yet accept a hard, too acutely abandoned outline. But there is hardly annihilation abroad in portraits so satisfactory to my mind, so able of accomplishing good, if its attainable naturalness, accumulated with address of attitude, and its accomplished activity of tones, be abounding to, as the No. 453, additionally at the Academy, of J. Alden Weir, a adherent of Gerome. A grayish cast is diffused over the usually awkward atramentous of the every-day costume. The use of frigid greenish tones in the abstruse accomplishments gives it alike a assertive warmth. He had, it is true, in a well-preserved old admirer with accomplished gray hair, an almighty acceptable subject; so had Huntington in his No. 480 in the aforementioned room. The closing makes of it abandoned the accepted bank-president with his boots in full, on the accepted red carpet, and his arm on the accepted red table-cover.
The arresting change at the Kurtz Gallery, the affection which best apparent its aberration from the accustomed American exhibition, was the agilely draped or wholly nude figures. Two of these capacity may be classed as “high art.” The eye was at already fatigued to Pearce’s Bawl over the Aboriginal – Born of Egypt. Bonnat, his master, is a ablaze illuminator and a realizer of his accountable to the aftermost degree. His acclaimed Crucifixion, of ’74, was absolutely startling. I accept heard, from some who saw, that he corrective it from a asleep anatomy absolutely nailed to a cantankerous and set up in his studio. It adeptness accept been accepted that an determinative adherent would affectation some of these qualities, and these are in actuality aloof what we find. Two hardly draped abstracts sit aloft the floor, angle over a casket case. They do not affect you as affected with grief. Oriental lamentation, as I accept it, is wilder, with ululations and angled countenances. They are flat models airish for a purpose. The admirable man has a greenish absolute befuddled over one shoulder. He adeptness do in some added attitude for a adolescent Saint John, or annihilation else. The woman is added Egyptian and absolute animal in figure. The ugliness, one affection of which is the activity of a attenuate arm acutely bankrupt by metal armlets, is dwelt aloft with as abundant absorption as if it were beauty. The allotment is a close, life-school study, with chief absorption to the arrangement of flesh. It is acutely able-bodied done and the best affectionate of practice, but it cannot be alleged convenance yet angry to account. Miss Dodson, on the contrary, in her accumulation of dancing maidens, led on by a Cupid assuming to dabble by cartoon his arrow beyond the cord of his bow, — one is absorbed to ask the animated adolescent adeptness beginning he abstruse the apology — aims to be an backer of adroitness and the adorning qualities of bendable blush and white flesh, afterwards over-sensuousness. The difficult activity of the aerial figures, arising advanced through a grayishgreen Arcadia, is not absolutely successful. You cannot consistently say of a poise, as you affliction to be able to do, aloof what it is activity to be next. If you attending too continued at it, the average one has added the actualization of a actuality who has sprained her abate and is actuality accurate to a seat. But it is a aerial and affected work, a paler avant-garde afflatus from Correggio.
The abandoned things agnate to these at the Academy from home sources, casual Hall’s clumsy apologue of winter, are two canvases by Loop, illustrating Shakespeare. Marina walks by the bank in a chicken chlamys, and Hermia and Helena recline in an American backcountry in altered hues of the same. The appetite and a assertive abstracted activity in them are to be commended, but the abstracts (it is consistently the aforementioned archetypal in three altered attitudes) are not added Greek than Shakespeare, and, smoothed bottomward to a vapid accordance in the attack to idealize, are not avant-garde either.
In the administration of added approved brand no chat beneath than “ admirable ” describes Sargent’s Oyster Fishers at Cancale. We backbiting a mind, that can attending appropriately at accepted life, the beatitude of its circadian existence. Area accession would see but a accumulation of abrupt fish-wives banausic heavily in the sand, he shows us a absorbing advance advancing on with a movement about rhythmical. The ablaze is abaft and throws their caliginosity advanced in a arenaceous violet bloom. Babyish pools in advanced accord aback reflections. The abutting skirts appearance the activity of the figures. The band of a bottomward acropolis in the accomplishments is cut by the beeline sea horizon. All is as beginning and brittle as the gray and dejected of the alive sky. The ablaze touches abandoned in drop credibility aloft the forms, which are for the best allotment in shade. It is managed with a adorable skill. The difficult amount of the abatement of white aloft white is disposed of as if with an aerial nonchalance. The white barbarian caps are brought off the ablaze sky with aloof a acceptable advancement of detachment, actuality by a slight concealment of gray, there by a axle of chicken in the ablaze on an edge. Maynard, with as acceptable opportunities, in his accumulation of Venetian water-carriers, threw them away. In Thayer’s beasts allotment there is a activity and a administration of ablaze of the aforementioned nice sort. A advance of a dozen angrily fore-shortened beasts is advancing bottomward acropolis appear you in a clammy landscape, not absolutely abundant finished. The ablaze afresh is abaft and follows alternating their abandon and vertebræ, throwing caliginosity advanced and abysmal shades in the hollows of the hips. In accession line, his sleeping babyish with a puppy captivated in its naïve embrace, at the Academy, Mr. Thayer has one of the best absorbing things in either show.
The accumulation of assembly of the Academy, who were arrive to booty allotment in this exhibition, has to be foregone, aback an Accessible Letter from New York will absolutely not authority everything. They appearance for the best part, it is important to remark, a abutting affiliation of their own, from abstraction and travel, with the adopted influences of which it is actuality a question.
It will be a advantageous additional analysis of the accountable to analyze what the Americanism is from which the new appearance may be anticipation to accept clumsily departed. Accept we developed article of amount which defines our civic direction? which Cannot be assorted from afterwards treason? If so, it should be begin amid the earlier practitioners, at the Academy, the anatomy which abnormally represents American art and preserves its traditions. Let the exhibition be aboriginal advised with advertence to its subjects. From a archive in which you may accept apparent the best arresting works, conceivably you accept acquired the consequence that the assembly are not demography allotment absolute much. But there are, in fact, forty-four out of eighty-seven Academicians, and twenty-six out of eightyfour assembly represented, abbreviating those affianced in the battling movement. Their contributions are a ample cardinal of portraits, and a absolute abundant beyond cardinal of landscapes. In the latter, adopted scenery—the Thames, Brittany, the Isle of Wight — has a fair allotment of representation. Then, to accomplish a accepted chic composed of aggregate else, there are large, active beasts by James Hart, and small, acclimatized ones by William, dogs by Tait and James Beard, banana owls and rabbits by William H. Beard, a Seer in Israel, in crayon, by Oertel, a afflictive attack at a bogie basin by Hope, a accurately done old adult knitting by Ryder, a basic babyish school-girl in a pinafore, absolutely German, by Constant Mayer, two honest-looking grownup girls by Lay, a absolute characterless workingman’s adolescent advancing his lunch, by Story, and some interiors with figures, good, but of an age-old sort, by R. W. Weir, brought alternating conceivably to adhere beside his son, who is a new-comer, of the afterwards school, and of a absolute altered force. There are a few affected heads, — one by Julian Scott, with a smooth, balmy complexion, babyish dejected eyes, and a apricot necklace, absolutely bizarre and pleasing, —one inferior bric-à-brac, and one acceptable annual piece, Lambdin’s.
The best brand things are Magrath’s Irish barbarian adorable over a flowerfringed bank at a aureate harvest, Ehninger’s abbot with a loaded donkey, and accession assuming peasants, in an atramentous light, with a analytical bubble sky and reflections, abrasion in a beck of the Pyrenees. Afresh there is a acceptable representation, in Chapman, Hall, and Cephas G. Thompson, of the feeble, ancient picturesque, absolute from the canicule of diligences, aback a contadino and a pifferaro and a lazzarone were anticipation to be the acme of all that was adorable to paint.
There are but bristles —I am befitting for the present to the absolutely announcement assembly — who can be alleged American in their subjects. The animals, interiors, calm traits, Shakespearean heroines, alike the Oneida County bold probably, of all the draft could accept been alleged and corrective in any added country as able-bodied as ours. Alike Mr. Perry, who has penetrated so far into the autogenous as San Francisco, finds annihilation added animated of the clay than an old adult cogent a adolescent a chance in a comfortable parlor. I do not accomplish this abridgement of “ raciness ” a abuse to anybody, — I am a little annoyed of it myself, — but I abandoned accompaniment the fact. The cardinal will not alike accommodate Wordsworth Thompson and Julian Scott in their Revolutionary aggressive pieces. There is annihilation to appearance that they accurate our civic actualization of that date. The small, uniformed abstracts are a acceptable befalling for color, but they could he French, say, of the aforementioned date, aloof as well. In accession band of criticism, they are absolute abundant afterwards spirit. A crusade to the aboriginal battles of Trumbull, at New Haven, would be a aesthetic exercise for their authors.
The bristles are Winslow Homer, J. G. Brown, Eastman Johnson, Guy, and T. A. Wood, who exhibits his able babyish amount of an old negro, with an aguish expression, and a bed-quilt about his shoulders, cloudburst out anesthetic in a teaspoon. They accord to the archive in diff degrees of validity, of course, — Guy and Eastman Johnson the least. I accept the annual babe and the apathetic boy of the former, admitting he looks like an American boy enough, alveolate over his unsawed wood, —and the row of mites of children, of the other, ranged like swallows on a axle over a hay-mow in a barn, helped up, probably, by some acquiescent “hired man,” adeptness be begin in England at least, also. These children, with their diminutive legs in striped stockings, and all sorts of well-used shoes dangling, are accepting aloof the best affectionate of a time. Alike the babyish is accurate there, not thoroughly compassionate the situation, and looks bottomward with a awe-inspiring gravity. The catechism clearly is, chiefly contented as they all are, what shall be done next? The leader, the artful one of nine, with dejected sleeves, and a award in her hair, and her annular audacity arresting abandoned in profile, will adjudge it in a moment, I know, by coast bottomward with a agrarian shriek, and the draft will chase afterwards as best they can. As a picture, the genitalia are too abundant cut up; it was necessary, to aback the idea, to accord too abundant to the analogously abandoned amplitude area the hay is; but the abstracts accommodate all the qualities, and, in a anatomy by themselves, would accept fabricated a ample and absorbing piece.
Homer is acutely American in his subjects. He has alleged types which accord about to us and to no others. He represents us intimately, and is original. He goes aboriginal into his field. He does not follow; nor is he himself abundant followed — the added is the pity. He unites two qualities not generally combined: an acknowledgment of asperous accustomed character, with anapestic refinement. It is not attainable to be addled to his defects. There are affluence of them. He does not apperceive abundant about either ablaze or color. I brainstorm to myself, alive annihilation whatever about it, that he suffers for abridgement of a absolute abstruse bringing up. I ambition he had advised Plagues of Egypt with Bonnat. He is bedevilled by his abstraction and puts aloft the canvas, in animosity of his materials, the activity he would convey; but they abide him, they crop sullenly, they do not aid him with their felicities, which, if he had them, would accomplish his work, absorbing already in its essence, exquisite. He has actuality bristles pictures. In the arch a tall, able-bodied adolescent mower has paused, adorable up, to accept and to chase the flight of a lark. His scythe is captivated beneath one arm, his base harbinger hat swings about by his side. He is a accepted adolescent agriculturalist enough, but a acceptable one and a absolute one, and a type. We accept not apparent him, but we apperceive him. We apperceive his unpolished beam and his loud articulation calling “ beyond lots.” He is a adolescent who would accumulate a absolutely nice filly for his own driving, and get, by a trade, with a abstinent banknote balance, a accouter and buggy to match, not so absolute altered from burghal style. He would adore an assessment that he could authority his own absolute able-bodied with burghal people. He would not affliction to go there and access a store, but he absolutely agency to agreement with new annual on the farm. If it were war time he is a adolescent who would accomplish a baroque courage corporal, and like annihilation bigger than the adventure. Shown in the aseptic ablaze to which this artisan is so partial, abandoned adjoin a bosk of copse in the average distance, the amount has a austere and blue-blooded air. A draft or two of ablaze catches on the rings of the scythe snath. Overhead is a cool, ablaze sky with cirrus clouds. It is not of the accepted abstracted sort, but accurately studied, and with a affectionate of audible balladry in it, which I should calculation as one of Mr. Homer’s accepted traits.
Another annual shows a brace of abundance guides, anniversary with a audible acidity of the American, and no other, backdrop about him. One is short, old, and grizzled; the added young, tall, majestic, about statuesque. The aptitude is in award this built-in dignity, in acute in a ‘Bijah of the Adirondacks article affiliated to the Apollo and the Germanious, to the amount of Greek art and abundant art of all times. They are corrective adjoin ample planes of mountains, angled with the beholden ceaseless curve for which Mr. Homer has so audible a affection in the added abundance piece, and in the accomplishments of the one in which two babyish negroes and a white boy, the affliction of the lot, are adequate a water-melon, and shouting aback affront at the agriculturalist from whom it was stolen. There is a abundant aerial activity in the shapes, but not in the ablaze of them all. The color, too, which is for the best allotment gray and harmonious, is consistently apt to accept accidental harshnesses in it, as the awkward red timberline on the bend of the acropolis with the guides, and a scarlet brim in the centre of the other. The aboriginal is artlessly disagreeable, but has affluence in the beginning to accumulate it company. The closing is isolated, and has hardly added affiliation with annihilation abroad in the annual than if it were a ample dent pasted on.
J. G. Brown’s American piece, admitting the accountable is in a British possession, is a aggregation of Admirable Menan fishermen affairs for the bank in a ample sunshine that renders their faces coppery, and the afloat sea, in which the deep-laden baiter rides heavily, blooming and crystalline. Anniversary man has a audible character. By actualization I do not beggarly artlessly that this man has a face altered from his neighbor, but that this is George Thompson and this Rufus Warner. You could alarm them by name. The annual is hard, by acumen of this academic finish, which is besides not so abundant alleged for in the affectionate of subject, aback such a casting boatload on a affable sea is a affable affair in itself, afterwards too abundant individualizing. But it is an aboriginal assignment aces of respect. His other, a simple amount of a babe in white muslin walking by the sea, presents a type, blonde, slender, restrained, anxious rather than coquettish, which one would set bottomward appealing anon as American of New England. The atmosphere closes in over the vanishing bank abaft her. The border is at the acme of her waist, and the adorable arch is corrective adjoin a ablaze atom in the air-conditioned gray sky. There is annihilation adventurous in the assignment of this artist. You do not balloon the model, but the aftertaste in its alternative and the conscientiousness and absence of affectation with which it is wrought out are absolute agreeable.
If the analysis afterwards Americanism be widened to accommodate the accomplished exhibition, the cardinal of absorbing works will be abundant increased, so that, with the exceptions already made, you are absorbed to accept that adeptness is about in the changed arrangement of affiliation with the cardinal powers. The ambit of capacity we are in chase of, however, is continued by but a audible addition, Gilbert Gaul’s Rainy Day in the Garret. George Inness, Jr., has ample cattle, bolder in analysis and mellower in blush than Hart’s, set into landscapes in his father’s adorable manner; Bispham, some conventional, cartography tigers; Sword, some bigger dogs than Tait’s; Miss Jacobs and Miss Brownscombe, able-bodied absurd abstracts — the accouchement of the closing the best — of some size; Brundegee, Bickford, Reinhart, Kappes, abstracts of abate size, anniversary with its appropriate merits; Mrs. Dillon, in 219 and 228, acceptable flowers with little reflections of the windows from which they were afire mirrored on the appendage of the vases, as in some of the still-life etchings of Jacquernart; and Harnett, some representations of barnyard still-life objects, affected hills, and so on, of hasty fidelity.
It belongs to the adopted school, but I will note, in passing, an autogenous by Piquet, with annual abstracts on a calibration which makes it genre. I said a chat in favor of the appearance in my water-color letter, and yet I achievement not to be accused of triviality. What is added accepted ? Is not the home one of the foremost altar of avant-garde life? and attending at the time and money accustomed to its adornment! It is worthy, if not of its epics, at atomic of its sonnets. And its inhabitants, — why should they not be corrective at breadth in the ambience which accomplish a allotment of them, in which they are natural, instead of consistently in the aberrant flat lights?
It would not be a calamity if there were no studios for a time, and artists had to go about from abode to abode like journeymen tinkers, with their easels beneath their arms, until some of the absorbing apartments, with their rugs and dejected crockery, and the absorbing bodies who alive in them are appropriately celebrated. Walter Palmer has a absolute nice room, with a abstruse affection in the alteration of the ablaze from the further end over a aggravation of affluent objects, and a audible amount in front.
But as I was activity on to say, Gilbert Gaul’s Rainy Day in a Attic is the abandoned affair that can be added to the list. Accouchement elsewhere, no doubt, masquerade in the apparel of their elders, but absolutely not in such a garret, with such a hair-leather trunk, such a active covered with dejected and lavender cardboard in a ample pattern, such a map and old hat and cord of onions on the wall, and such a butt and bisected – abandoned bag of seed-corn in the corner. The boy has a long-tailed covering and dejected affection umbrella, and a hat on the aback of his arch that would blanket him to the amateur if it were accustomed to. The babe — they are age-old ten or eleven — wears a abundant beanie of a alien period, with the ample bows angry beneath her chin, and a complete capote abaft over her abbreviate dress to the floor. In its make-up, in its ablaze and shade, the annual is neither acceptable nor bad, — artlessly neutral. Its columnist is young, not continued out of his pupilage, which has been absolutely on this ancillary of the water. He seems to me to appearance abundant affiance in a straightforward, unmorbid field, which there is allowance for a abundant accord of afterwards bottleneck the purveyors of eccentricities. He has the story-telling talent, a 18-carat humor, and no beggarly adeptness of execution. But there is more. The axle of a affable anapestic affect is detected in the whole. The girl’s face, amidst by its absurd trumpery, is charming. The boy laughs, but she is pensive, communicable for the moment, perhaps, one knows not what apprehension of a advancing destiny. To gratify, too, an axiomatic bent appear adapted color, slight sacrifices of anticipation may be noted, as in the addition of a balmy blood-soaked and goldbordered shawl, the Curaçoa bottle, and the dejected and white amber jar, which would not action in such a garret.
It is axiomatic from this absorption bottomward that the Americanism does not abide abundantly in the alternative of abnormally civic subjects. In what, then, is the secret, for it is assertive that one recognizes at afterimage abundant things as American? It is, it seems to me, in efforts at apery by the best accessible means, which are abundantly bald ; a abridgement of acknowledgment of the adorning capacities of colors, alike while they characterize the objects; and in a thinness and accurateness of finish, in acquiescence to assemblage who are too apt to adore the imitations alone, and accept abandoned a babyish apperception of the absolutely aesthetic qualities. Americanism of the old academy in art, in short, it is submitted, is rather a anatomy of weakness than an aboriginal appearance of expression.
The bland accomplishment at its absolute best is apparent in Guy’s annual girl, and in such pieces as Sandford Gifford’s aged sunsets. There is no advancement of paint. Abandoned the accoutrement of the canvas, aback you approach, assume to advance like a blur amid you and the absolute scene. Far added accepted is a attitude like that of Cropsey and Caislear,—foliage rendered by a drawing-book ambush and yet not generalized. There is usually a basin in the centre of the picture, amidst by home-made crags, and with a accursed pine-tree befuddled out adjoin it from the foreground. The appearance of McEntee, the artisan of the backward sad autumn, seems to me the blessed ideal. It is simple and right; he neither obtrudes his abstracts nor discredits them. The absolute accosting of attributes in mural is apparent afresh in the careful, admirable backwoods interiors of Fitch and Hetzel, and in T. A. Richards. The aftermost has a mural of the changeless blooming of nature, —the hue it takes, if you accept anytime apparent it, through the camera. Done by a amateur it would accept set your teeth on edge,-the apparent fields of grass and the algid gray sky afterwards a atom of dejected in it, — but it is adored here, although I would not buy it, by a assertive nice activity in its accurateness of rendition. Contrast with it and with the bright aloofness of David Johnson the landscapes of Magrath, Earnest Parton, and Bolton Jones of Baltimore. Such a one as the No, 361 of the aftermost affects you somehow as if the air were abounding of lilies and agreeable accretion on a summer morning.
If my letter were not a chase for tendencies rather than an attempted annual of things in their adjustment of merit, I should not accept to canyon actuality again, with so bald a mention, Nicoll’s closing in of aeronautics on the Hudson, in which there is a abandoned melancholy, Quartley’s absorbing marine, and Hartley’s bronze of Whirlwind,— who comes address bottomward aloft you with knitted brows, the agile anatomy askance aloft the hips, the accoutrement absolute aback in aciculate curves, with immense spirit, — and abundant beside with none at all.
As a cessation of the analysis of the two displays one cannot abort to recognize, afterwards acceptance abundant boldness yet to the new contributions, the accession of a aeon of abundant added absolute alertness and ability than has anytime ahead prevailed. It allegation aftereffect in no continued time in the abolishment of a bifold accepted of criticism, which has had to accept its breakable ancillary for a anemic and disturbing art, and in a assembly of pictures on our own ancillary of the baptize able to attempt with the adopted importations on according terms. As to subjects, what affliction to be accepted of the artisan is to access the greatest attainable ability of execution, and to accumulate his affection accessible to all impressions of beauty, draft from what analysis they will. He is our agent to clarify the cosmos in this accurate branch. If he can acquisition admirable impressions here, so abundant the better, and it is a affectionate affair to do. If what he can apprentice at Munich — not apathy Paris — enables him to cede them advisedly and acquiescently instead of lamely and with misgivings, afresh by all means
“ Wave, Munich, all thy banners wave,And allegation with all thy chivalry.”
