Young woman; quarter-plate
  by Southworth and Hawes
  collection of Matthew R. Isenburg


"The result was simplicity mingled with a certain primitive awkwardness. Beneath the surface of this work there is, however, in these pictures a fundamental quality which will never pass out of fashion, but will be appreciated always by those who love artistic things. We feel that they embody, in many instances, the vision of an artist's eye, and that in their faces there is a vitality which none but keen observers of human nature could have rendered."
