"This young and wonderful artist has here presented us with a piece which strikes the eye even of a superficial beholder, as possessing more than common merit. We perceive he has copied Bourbon in the style of his coloring, and Le Brun in the dis- position of his groups. Some of the figures, however, are want- ing in strength of expression. We have no doubt of seeing the works of this artist praised by every connoisseur who sees them." [P. 303; Gottesman adds in footnote:] "John Crawley (c. 1784-1842, or later), born in England but lived and worked in Newark, N.J., Philadelphia, Charleston, S.C., and Richmond, Va." [P. 303.]
New-York, April 6, 1802. Columbian Gallery. At the Pantheon, No. 80, Greenwich-Street, near the Battery.
