This is a copy by the artist's hand, of his large picture. His paintings are highly esteemed for the delicacy and life-likeness of their coloring. The myth here illustrated is that of Acteon, who watched Diana while she was bathing, and, discovered by her, was immediately transformed into a stag and torn to pieces by his own dogs. [P. 5.]
