Camuccini, Director of the Academy of Fine Arts at Rome--Death of Lucretia. This picture was executed by order of the Emperor Napoleon, who presented it to his illustrious sister, Queen of Etruria. At the downfall of Napoelon it was concealed by those to whom it had been intrusted. It is said that 100,000 francs had been paid for it. A sight of it, and an examination of its beauties convinces the mind that no sum can be considered extravagent. [P. 4.]
