Of this picture, the well-qualified critic of the N.Y. Courier & Enquirer remarks:--"It is admirable as a composition, and full of lifelike and startling contrasts, presenting a scene in the civil war of Charles I, of England, at the moment of the capture of a Cavalier's stronghold by the Roundheads. There is history and character in every personage, in every accessory, even in the dogs introduced into this picture. It is a study for a day." It is really wonderful that so much action, so much expression in detail and fine delineation, could be thrown upon so small a canvas. Nos. 22, 29, and 74, by the same artist, this same power in detail. [P. 14; see entries 01550022, 01550029, and 01550074 for other works noted in this commentary.]
