Prayer (1877)

Medium: oil

Exhibited: Royal Academy, 1877

Athenaeum, 5 May 1877:

Prayer (283) shows a chapel with a woman lost in devotion, a capital piece of effect.

Athenaeum, 26 May 1877:

Mr E. Crowe’s Prayer (283) is not so good as his other works. A French girl is depicted kneeling before a crucifix in a side chapel of a large church; her action is full of expression, her figure is neatly, soundly and firmly painted; the whole is solid and full of light, but the effect is hard, the colour is cold, and there is need of breadth in many parts.
