Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 836
As a specimen of a very successful rendering of the "quality" of a painting--and by this we mean as close a translation into black and white of a work in color as can be made--the engraving of "The Virgin and Infant Jesus," after Boticelli, by F. Gaillard, No. 836, is especially noteworthy. In this the engraver has evidently tried to give us everything but the color, and he has certainly succeeded marvellously in reproducing, not merely the archaic drawing and the sentiment of the original work, but its tone and texture.
