"Lands Knecht, Die," or Soldier off Guard, (painting)
Rothermel, P. F.
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 6
The composition shows the German "Land Guard" off guard, enjoying his wine and the smiles of the pretty waiting girls. It is filled with good expression, and a characterization quite in the vein of Scott's Dugald Dalgetty. [P. 11.]
