S.F.B. Morse, P.N.A. Mr. Morse studied in London under West and Alston, our great historical painters. He was the founder of the National Academy, in 1814, which has produced and nourished a school of fine arts, the pride of N.Y. Mr. Morse is a native of Mass., and is now on his third visit to Europe: his mind stored with literature and science; his pencil replete with skill, of which this picture is a specimen. (See Hist. of Arts of Des.) [P. 6; catalogue number "9" appears in the catalogue. In sequence, however, this should be catalogue number "5."]
