A spirited picture in the early manner of the master: the scene is full of life and action. Virginia has just dropped from the murderous knife of Virginius; Icilius interferes to stop the fury of the soldiers, while the riot commences in the marketplace. Appius Claudius is in alarm for his safety; his character, and the subject, is well expressed. The colouring excellent. (On copper--1 ft. 10 inh. by 1 ft. 5 inh.) [P. 11.]
