The Peoria Star, Sunday, April 27, 1919

The Peoria Star, April 27, 1919:

"...of these probably the strongest is Out of the Mist, two small beech trees standing alone with their brilliant yellow winter leaves against a misty forest in which the evergreens are dominant. The friendliness and cheer of the beeches and the mystery of the forest gives a human quality to the picture which is unusual for one of its class, and the coloring and technique are fine."
