The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 48



The best portrait picture in the Exhibition is one exhibited by Mr Hulbert, "Maori page 26 Woman and Child," by Herr Lindauer. This picture was noticed in these columns some time since, together with other works by the same artist. The best landscapes are those shown by Mr Gibb, whose subjects are Lyttelton Harbour, two views on the Avon, Heathcote Valley, and a scene in the Little River district. It will suffice to say that Mr Gibb fully sustains his reputation as a faithful delineator of New Zealand scenery. Mr Gibb also demonstrates on the present occasion that he is a highly successful teacher. The immense number of pictures included in the Exhibition renders any detailed notice of them in these columns an impossibility. Some of the young lady exhibitors displayed almost a precocity of talent, and the work they have done must be most gratifying to their teachers and friends.
