It is executed on wood, and may without impropriety be classed among the first productions of the great master whose work it indubitably was. For grandeur and beauty of Design, sweetness of expression, depth of tone, and transparency of chiaroscuro it is probably unequalled in this country. From the gallery of Louis Napoleon. $3,000.
