Excerpt from The Messenger of the Sacred Heart, With Supplement, Vol. 32: A Magazine of the Literature of Catholic Devotion; January-December, 1897 Under his brush light takes the tones of gold such as Claude Lorraine might envy. The wonderful way in tch his waters are made deep but crys tal-like, his meadows glittering like constellations with ﬂowers, his tufted woods full of mysterious shadows, his transparent skies of azure just veiled by a banishing film of haze, all marked him as the proper one to por tray the little maid who brought heaven and earth so close together. In sym pathy so to speak with St. John's of Bruges there is in St. John's of Ford ham a great painting of the Saint with her maidens gathered beneath her mantle. The happy angels on either side touch its border to lift it. A most exquisite innocence displays itself on the beauti ful upturned faces. They are all of the same type, but all with just a shade of difference to distinguish them from each other. The painter has treated the drapery with the carelessness of an im pressionist, and has devoted all his at tention to the child-like candor of the faces. It is an old thing, byl don't know whom, but he has left us a beautis ful bit of devotion on canvas. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
