1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 460 (Sale info: For Sale).
This great work was on exhibition in Boston, and the owner obtained from the same $10,000. Immense crowds of people went to see it, and came away perfectly extravagant in its praise. Words, certainly, are insufficient to convey to the mind an adequate idea of this superb work of art; it is only when sight comes to their aid that the scene can be in any way appreciated or realized.
