1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 37
The picture is rather too light, airy and beautiful for the subject. The solitude which evidently reigns amid the dismantled, ivy-crowned, is rendered too elegant, to be fully effective. It is very well sometimes to 'bathe our wings in light;' but the shattered wreck looks more majestic in a grosser element. [P. 130.]
