"The eyes sufficiently evince mental derangement; they have plenitude without superfluity." [P. 298; Gottesman adds in footnote:] "In the Pennsylvania Packet of August 1793, Daniel Bowen advertised that 'in consequence of a purchase lately made by him of all the large and elegant paintings executed by the late celebrated Mr. Robert Edge Pine,' he would continue his exhibition in Philadelphia. Later he moved his show to New York and then to Boston. In Boston he advertised that he had a hun- dred paintings valued at one thousand dollars by the late Robert E. Pine. In 1807 Bowen's galleries were destroyed by fire and many of Pine's paintings were lost forever. 'A Mad Woman' was listed in Bowen's exhbition in New York (Columbian Gazetteer, June 9, 1794)." [P. 299.]
