No. 24.--THE ADORATION OF THE MAGI. An unequal performance--has many merits, but many faults, also. The composition is good; the colouring and arrangement of the draperies is good, as are the postures and faces of the principle [sic] figures, and the general finish of the foreground; but the back-ground may be supposed to be by an inferior hand. [P. 19; see entry 01600032 for a note on the artist.]
