(An Autumn Scene sixteen miles South-East of Rome, in the mountains. Illustrates one of the most lovely localities in that vicinity; Monte Calvi rises in the middle of the picture, upon the almost perpendicular side of which is built the town of Rocco di Papa. On the summit used to stand the Temple of Jupiter. Just below at the base of the mountain is Castle Gandolfo, the summer residence of the Popes; and to the right the town of Genzano, while to the left may be seen some portions of Frascati, through the trees and shrubbery is a glimpse of the beautiful little Lake of Albano. There is great depth and richness of coloring, with a vigorous dashey freeness of style, and great truthfulness to the scene depicted, while a true feeling for color and a most poetic atmosphere pervades the whole work. The Artist is the same who has recently painted the City and Bay of New York, which was purchased for the sum of $5,000 and presented to the Prince of Wales.) [P. 5.]
