"The Virgin Attended by Two Angels," No. 63, is a very coarse, homely Dutch frau, with scarcely a trace of the peculiar refined sentiment which is observable in nearly all of Durer's Madonnas, and the angels were evidently fed upon pork and sauer-kraut rather than upon more celestial viands. The simple earnestness of the work, however, makes it respectable despite its coarseness, while as a specimen of delicate manipulation, it is beyond all praise. [P. 22 (supp.).]
