Is at hi beet This group nf abilities,
Jtli.led by taste, i not to lie despised,
and .: wa long ago proven that In any
of the art such work as this of Mr.
Tryon's will seldom fnll of a contempor

of every artlt that most rare and
precious gift, cnatlve Imagination. It

has done Here are plrtnre dating
back to 1'1. studies of moonlight and
barns and sluep. In which the sturdier
qualities of tlio painter are happily
vet forth. Less Mibtlo than those of
his later years, these nevertheless de
note a painter deeply In sympathy with
h'.s theme. ILs stjle was franker
then than now, more suggestive of ur

said to be the llrst picture In which
Try.,n ha utilised the design upon
whh it, w'Mi variations, he ha malnl
worked .net- since. The Mat foreground,
undi r a f.Unt light, and the row of
tree In the background, rising until
they are silhouetted against a tender
sltv, ha become almost a fixed pattern
with Mr. Tryon. Here one sees It at a
time when it still contained something
of th" primal Impulse of discovery or
adaptation. The design Itself Is a de
cidedly agreeable one. ,Ii Is bilanced,
i; show, a reasonable distribution of
masse and of light and shade, and the
color ha not suffered the Infusion
of purple mist Hint sweetens u little
too Insistently some, even a good deal,
of Tryon's later work.
This pattern, as the seasons havo
swung round, has become a convention
with tills nrtlst. The latest specimen of
It. which occupies u prominent place In
th" present exhibition, Is a larre
"Springtime" one of the P.i2 pictures.
II Is undeniably handsome, and Its
subtleties are not lost upon the ordi
nary observer. Hut for tho present
writer nil Hint It contains of csi-entlal
poetry, and a good denl more, may be
Iniind In u more conecntrati il nnd vigor

"Autumn" of lium lent by Mr. Albright.
This Is not far from Tryon nt his beM,
a performance In wli'di thn blending of
good design and Hie rendering of nl
mondiero and light minimize the lark
of a strong strain of Invention. And
ul bis best Mr. Tryon Is a painter to
command rrspicl, to win heaity esleemi !
