TONE, COLOR
In fine reproductions of Rembrandt's portraits there is color. We do not so readily find it in prints from the works by Franz Hals, Rubens, and Van Dyck. Among early English painters Gainsborough is the colorist from the black and white standpoint. Whistler represents that quality strongly among the moderns. Portrait artists of the present Scotch school strive for and ad mirably express it.
Figure 115 has attained to much color; it is found to some extent in Fig. 113 and is not absent from Fig. 123.
