At Messrs. Colnaghi's Galleries Sir Charles Holmes is seen particularly well. His four water-colours downstairs have unusual spirit with their expected qualities of design, and The Eden near Lazonby, with its fine sky, is one of his most important and completely realized paintings. Mr. Algernon Newton's views of London, in a style reminiscent of eighteenth- century prints and painting, are becoming rather monotonous, while Mr. Cundall's interest in contemporary life increases the interest of his work. Sir John Lavery, Mr. Gerald Kelly, Mr. Glyn Philpot and Mr. Gwynne-Jones are other exhibitors and Mr. Bomberg an unexpected one. Miss Hester Frood's drawings should not be overlooked.
