Note: Exhibition catalogue extract: 'Catalogue of a collection of water-colour drawings by Arthur Severn, R.I. : with prefatory notes upon his work and upon the 100 exhibitions held at the Fine Art Society's, 148 New Bond Street, London. 1892.' Prefatory note in the form of a letter from Severn (to FAS?). Explains that Ruskin was unable to do introduction because of ill-health: 'if he had been well enough, I am sure he would have written me a preface and a very interesting one too! as he would have been able to have some very nice hits at some of us painters who go out of our way to paint atmospheric effects in London and elsewhere, produced by fog and smoke and gloom, and which suggest, what he considers mere squalor and the smoke which he hates.'(p.1)
