"This picture is considered of the first importance, especially as an example of drawing, color and expression. it is one of that kind to which a value can scarcely be affixed, and for which such very large sums are now realised in Europe. The beauties of this gem are so apparent, that it is deemed neces- sary to solicit public attention to them." [P. 14; indicated in catalogue as an attribution only to the artist named.]
