Another work showing the German familiarity with our great poet. The scene is from "Henry IV." The work is considered a masterpiece of the eminent painter. The "Courier and Inquirer" says of the picture: "It is one of the most charming works in the Gallery. In color we consider it undoubtedly the best figure-piece here; it has equal merit in "Chiaro-scuro," and is full of the exquisite humor of the scene. The fat knight's swaggering attitude, and impudent expression; the character given to the 'woman's tailor,' who needs not scissors to tell his trade; the management of the light in the recess behind Falstaff; and the introduction of the little page with the sword, appears to us the fine points in the work, which is one of admirable keeping and rare completeness."
