A REVIEW BY H. WILDER BENTLEY
In summing up the life of an American water-colorist who had
shown great promise in her youth, a famous painter in New York once
said to a young artist about to set sail for southern Italy: "-and let
her tragic example be a lesson to you. Southern Italy is too beautiful
an environment for the painter. It leaves nothing to the imagination.
