Description of work:
Boston critic had this to say about the artist, “Mr. Flagg’s street scenes possess a fine local feeling. They are more than memoranda, yet retain the graphic first impressions coupled with the studied phases. This same fidelity is notice-able in his landscape water colors. He never fails to give us the surface of the broad fields in true perspective and coloring, and one cannot but appreciate his artistic compositions. Besides all these features, so essential in good art, his painting qualities are ever evident, so that, all told, we have worthy results,— good pictures, poetic and valuable transcripts from nature.”
