This is called a "companion-piece" to the preceding, though it in no way depends upon that for its interpretation, being a perfect portrait-gallery in itself. As such, it has won a wide renown, having not only been elegantly engraved for popular circulation in Europe, but also having been copied by the artist himself for preservation in Dusseldorf. It is the celebrated painters of this great school in their prime. The whole picture is marked with the extremest care and finish; and it may well serve as a study to those artists whose "dashing effects" are mere excuses for haste and want of real cultivation. [P. 10; see entry 01550005 for companion piece.]
