Christ in disguise walking with the "two disciples," as "He expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself." A painting of the highest quality and interest. The poetical composition of the landscape, (which is entirely imaginary,) and the warm glow of color in the sky and atmosphere, bear good evidence that it was no mean fountain whence Claude drew his earliest inspirations of poetic art. The figures are by Annibale Carracci, and the genuineness of the whole work is placed beyond question by certificates of the highest living authority. [P. 10.]
