Very fine. [P. 12.] The set of fourteen "Passion" prints, by J. De Gheyn, are very fine, and should be compared with the similar series by Durer. They are from designs by C. Vanmander, one of the most illustrious of the Flemish predecessors of Rubens; and while there is a curious disposition in some of the figures--the artist's idea on the subject of perspective evidently having been slightly vague,--they have certain technical qualities, both as designs and as engravings, which are lacking in Durer's prints. Admirable, however, as these engravings are, there is a spirituality in Durer's work which we do not find in them. [P. 25 (supp.).]
