The subject is exemplified by a female figure supporting three infants. In the back ground are seen the wheel of St. Catherine, part of a column, and clouds with a ray of glory descending through them. This composition appears to have been a favorite with the artist and his friends, as we find four in addition to the present; one in the possession of P. Methuen, Esq., valued at 800 guineas, one in the possession of T. Hope, Esq., one in the possession of the Earl of Lonsdale, and one in the Dulwich Gallery. [P. 8.]
