After Francesco Albani. This is a faithful copy of one of the most famous and admired paintings in Milan. The subject is beautifully conceived and admirably executed. The picture has exercised various branches of art since its first appearance. In looking at it, one is reminded of Shakspeare's charming poem--"A Midsummer Night's Dream" and the fairy pranks of Puck and his companion elfs. [P. 41.]
