Among the Paintings.
Attractive Exhibition of the Work of Local Artists.
Lorus Pratt’s most striking work is “A Village by the River, France.” The perspective and drawing of this picture are good, and it is painted in a spirited manner, but the picture is not simple enough. It is not only a village by the river, but a whole chapter of French peasant life. Mr. Pratt should study the methods of T.F. Millet. His pictures of the Jordan river are not satisfactory. The same can be said of his portrait of a baby.
