Date:
1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 4
A fine specimen of the Roman school of art. The artist has given a fine expression of the despair and utter wretchedness which a life of pauperism stamps upon the faces of those most helpless of all beggars, the Italian Lazzaroni. A mother and her three children cling imploringly to the door of a house where they have sought in vain for shelter and food. [P. 405; exhibited under heading: "Paintings." Exhibited also on p. 414 under the heading "Donations. List of Paintings Donated to the Great Western Sanitary Fair" and listed as a donation by Wilson McGrew.]
