"A very animated picture which pleased much: but how could a naked boy playing with gold fishes in an arbour, be assimilated to Miranda cheering her father with her smiles, when they were abandoned to a wild sea in a leaky boat. To this passage in the 'Tempest' the lines, appended to the picture in the catalogue, refer. 'Then a cherubim thou wert,' &c." [P. 34.]
