Exhibition Catalogs
Date:
1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 27
This picture, and No. 32 by the same admirable artist, are illustrations of a German comic poem called the "Jobsiade," and widely known. "Jobs" was a "ne'er do well," as the Scotch would say--first a stupid divinity student, he afterwards became a school-master, and failing in that vocation, he turned night watchman. [P. 4; see entry 01580032 for companion piece.]
