Negative by Mrs. J. M. Appleton.


The following editorial comment concerning Appleton’s work appeared in the American Amateur Photographer  for April, 1891 as part of a review of the Lynn Camera Club Exhibition:


It is manifestly impossible to mention all the pictures in the exhibition; all that we can hope to do is to call attention to a few of the more meritorious exhibits, among which those of Mrs. Jeannette M. Appleton easily take the first place for artistic merit. Mrs. Appleton brings to her photographic work a fine artistic sense trained by long study in the best Parisian ateliers, and her prints always repay careful study. Her ” Listening to the Voices in the Pines,” which took the silver medal in the contact bromide class, showed much of artistic feeling, and the same may be said of her large bromide print of the horse “Mat Morgan.” (p. 138)
