Gorson's "Pittsburgh Bridge at NiRht" is very suggestive of the raystery of industrial Pittsburgh, with ita dark river lit by the fitful glare of the furnaces. George Sotter in his "Over the Top" has painted a Pittsburgh in snow seen through mist. The foreground is broken by the sharp spire of a church just below the hill, and in the middle distance are two echoing spires of a church in the valley; the rest of the picture is composed of row .ipon row of houses.
