The combination and beauty of colour in this painting, places it amongst his highest works. The figures are beautifully varied and the subject expressed with delicacy--a repetition of several of his beautiful studies may be recognised, particularly the one often painted by him as a Magdalen. The style of colouring in this picture is that which he adopted after studying the works of Correggio. (On canvas--4 ft. 6 inh. by 3 ft. 8 inh.) [P. 9.]
