No single painting ever created a greater furore among the connoisseurs of art than did this exquisite face when first exhibited in this city last spring. Secured expressly for this purpose, it has been refused time and again to parties who would willingly have paid the price named. Do not fail to see it. It will repay a careful study. [P. 5; exhibited under heading: "Oil Paintings." The word "furore" appears in italics in the catalogue.]
